Wool Tree Yarn is a new line being launched by Lucky Ewe Yarns in Gruene, Texas. With the introduction of this new line, Wool Tree Yarn is attempting to revive a lost industry in Comal County.  New Braunfels was once a huge producer of cotton.  Comal Cotton and Pepperill Mills milled yarn and produced garments and fabrics for years.  The goal of Wool Tree Yarn is to recreate a small portion of that local heritage and create locally farmed, milled, and dyed yarn.  Chris Parker is an expert dyer who uses only native plants, bugs, bark, and seed to create the amazing colors for this line, the old fashioned way, over an open flame.

Wool Tree Shawl is available exclusively through Lucky Ewe Yarns in a kit, until April 1, 2013 when it will be released to the general public.  For more information, please contact clover@luckyeweyarn.com or give them a call at 830-620-0908.

That shawl is beautiful!! (What I can see of it.) Am I looking at the wrong side? I wish I could run down there and see it and crawl around in all the yarn!

"Tiny lambs on the ends of its branches"? Well, I guess it got my attention. :)
