Note: Like many small businesses, our supply chain has chugged on a little bit slower than we'd like as we emerge from the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic. While most colors of Forge will ship immediately, orders for Midnight and Aspen will ship in May, while orders for Ash, Barn Red, Gold Leaf, Juniper, Lake, and Red Feather will ship in early June.
Forge is made from a heathered blend of 70% U.S. Merino (sourced in Colorado and New Mexico), and 30% U.S. Corriedale (sourced in New York) wool. Forge is a round, well-balanced three-ply yarn. It has a beautiful balance of stitch definition, bounce, and wooly, cohesive bloom that produces both beautiful stockinette fabrics and eye-popping cables. Forge is fabulous in sweaters, hats, mitts, cowls, and even large-format shawls, and knits up happily on needles in the US 6 - 8 (4.00 mm to 5.00 mm) range.
Forge is spun at Battenkill Valley Fibers in Greenwich, New York, and Mountain Meadow Wool in Buffalo, Wyoming, and dyed at Ultimate Textile in Rutherfordton, North Carolina. Read more about how Forge is made and sourced.
A quick note about color: we know there's nothing more frustrating than yarn that looks one color online and another when it shows up at your door. We've used a fine art reproduction camera and studio lighting to capture true-to-life colors; this means they're optimized for accuracy, not for "pop" on your screen. Still, for best results, you'll want to view them on a color-calibrated screen; a modern smartphone or tablet with the brightness turned up works great.
