Conscious Marigold + Onionskin

Conscious Marigold + Onionskin


This beautiful yarn comes from a small family farm set on an island in Lake Ontario with some serious commitment to their land, animals, and surrounding community. Here are a few highlights and I think you will agree that I couldn’t have named this yarn base anything but Conscious…

-the sheep roam freely, breed according to their natural cycles, and aren’t fed growth hormones.

-stewardship of the land is paramount at the island farm: no pesticides are used, bees are kept to promote healthy pollination, and Monarch butterflies are encouraged with an indigenous wild flower program.

-4 large gardens on the farm help get fresh produce to several food security/shelter programs.
