FARM TO FASHION...MADE IN THE USA “NUNA” is a native American name meaning “OF THE LAND”. All plants and animals depend on this land for food and nourishment. While farmers plant, harvest and steward the land. From the grasses and forbs that nourish animal fleeces they forever share…know that you will be supporting the growing desire to BUY LOCAL and BUY NATURAL. PEGGIE EHLERS is the creative inspiration behind NUNA KNITS. As a maker of yarn of all things wool, her world is enveloped with knitting, researching trends, spinning, teaching, and creating breed specific blended yarns/garments for the Nuna brand, private industry designers and farmers.

River Valley Farm raises Cotswold sheep for their lustrous, long locks of wool in Pittsfield, MA in the heart of the beautiful Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts utilizing organic and biodynamic methods that sustain our flocks, our land and ourselves. My flock of Cotswold sheep share their long lustrous, curly locks with me twice a year. They grow a great quantity of wool. The sheep are protected from danger by their companion llamas. "The boys," as they are referred to, give us their warm and lofty llama fleeces only once a year. "My girls," live a life of ease eating grass, herbs and forbes from the first greening in spring until the last leaf has blown away in fall. Fresh mountain spring water quenches their thirst and shade trees abound in their pastures; some dropping sweet apples in the fall. Winters are spent lazing around eating the grass hay we have harvested on the farm, chewing their cud, frolicking in the snow and waiting for the warm breath of spring to fill the air. I personally hand wash every fleece and use mineral, plant and insect dyes to achieve my broad palette of color. My goats give us lovely sweet milk and always more than we can use. Not wanting to waste a drop, I turn the excess into soap. Goat milk soap is super moisturizing and very gentle for use on delicate skin. Please visit my website to see some pictures of the sheep and goats I spend my days with and the shows I travel to. rivervalleyfarm.org

Shelterwood Farm is a small farm located in Pennington, NJ We make our yarns from our handspinners flock of Romney and Coopworth sheep breeds. Our sheep are shorn once a year in the spring by a local shearer. We then skirt, wash, dye, drumcard, and handspin our fleeces. A few of the fleeces are sent to a local mill to be made into roving. We dye locks and roving in crockpots on the back porch. Sometimes we blend in mohair, llama, alpaca, silk, bamboo, sparkle or other add-ins for interest. All our yarns and roving are labeled with the first name of the sheep and the last name is their breed. Our sheep are raised with love and care.

The Spin City Meetup group was founded in 2007 by Donna Panner, spinning teacher and fanatic, as a result of her interest in making yarn with hand spindles and spinning wheels. The group has almost 300 members of all skill levels and typically meets once a week for lively conversation about all things related to fiber arts, sharing of knowledge about yarn creation, and informal spinning instruction. Their meetings are held in public spaces, parks and restaurants around the city, and the group was featured in the New York Times on July 27, 2010 in a Nocturnalist article by Sarah Maslin Nir (see article, attached) after a meetup at the Highline Park. Recent events included the World Wide Spin in Public Day (WWSIP), held in Central Park. In a previous year, WWSIP took place on Pier I overlooking the Hudson River, with a majestic view of the City for all the participating spinners. The group has been represented at the Spring and Fall Sheep Shearing at Queens Farm, and often gets together for an evening of dinner and fiber shopping on the Upper West Side at The Yarn Company. For more information, go to www.meetup.com and search for Spin City. We’d love to see you at a meet up.
