Wouldn't you feel warm and happy wearing or giving a hand knit hat, shawl or other beautiful item? It’s a “permanent hug” for this cold winter coming. The Solitude Wool partners enjoy knitting and weaving and sometimes we make things to sell at December farmers markets.
This year, due to the pandemic, we won't be going so here they are! We can’t list many details with each variant, so our volunteer review panel will be sharing more details and their fav's in a catalog/blog post to come...
Just in time for cooler weather. A beautiful addition to your sofa for naps or take along to a local winery, brewery, restaurant or your own backyard or balcony. This custom designed and woven throw is large enough to wrap up in but light enough to carry easily. Different twill patterns and variegated yarns make each of the 50 throws unique, but of a family. Hand twisted fringes and fulling will keep the throw looking great for years. Gift worthy, it comes in a box with Chesapeake Fibershed product checklist.
Because of the hand work to finish the fringes and full, we will sell throws as they are available plus you can pre-order for different ship dates as we estimate we can have them ready.
Size: 45" by 75"
Weight: 1 pound, 10 ounces
100% wool from sheep in the Chesapeake Fibershed: 50% North Country Cheviot, 47% Romney and 3% mohair.
Primarily undyed white and natural color wool, about 15% of the fibers were dyed in the wool with weak acid dyes to create a variegated yarn that gives the throws such a distinctive and unique undulating pattern.
Woven by Peggy Hart of Bedfellows Blankets in Massachusetts on old industrial looms with 16 harnesses. Different twill patterns give the throws lovely drape.
Hand twisted fringes and fulling will stay good looking through the years

We are five Loudoun County, Virginia shepherds and fiber artists who love wool. We hand select fleeces from small farms in the Chesapeake Fibershed region to create
breed specific yarn and roving. Imagine different grapes making really different wines...wool is like that. Different types of wool are wonderful
for different end uses. We hope you find a wool you love, or maybe one that surprises you.
