After one adventurous drive in a minivan brimming with alpaca fiber, O-Wool Local was born. Local is processed in the Northeastern USA. It is squishy and soft, and still has that alpaca smell and some lanolin left in the fiber. It is a truly rustic, minimally processed yarn - if that's your thing, you're going to love this yarn.
O-Wool is a small company with the goal of providing knitters and crafters with a yarn that is environmentally responsible, affordable, and made locally in our very own Philadelphia and the USA. O'Wool skeins are wound in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia and some yarns are dyed down the street in the Germantown neighborhood. O'Wool sources it's non-mulesed merino wool from certified organic farms in South America and Australia.
