Heron is designed by Lydia Christiansen, owner of Abundant Earth Fiber Mill. Lydia's passion for fiber and spinning inspired her to open her own mill in July of 2014. We are so glad her dreams led her to bring such beautiful yarn to the world!
"The strong and lustrous Wensleydale in this yarn was raised and milled on Whidbey Island where the beaches and wetlands are home to the Great Blue Heron. These birds stand in glass-like water motionless for what seems like hours. They glide across the shores with slow, deliberate steps as if in harmony to a whisper. Their stately form and blue-gray feathers speak to the effortless beauty of the natural world. The intention in creating this longwool/mohair blend of yarn is to invite the elegance and thoughtfulness of Heron into your handwork as your needles move equally as graceful through each skein." -Lydia of Abundant Earth Fiber
