We love Cestari yarns and love the story of their journey to the place they are now.
Cestari Sheep and Wool Company manufactures this yarn using cotton harvested in the state of Virginia, US, grown in rich soil creating a truly exceptional plant fiber. It is then spun and dyed in their Virginia mill.
Farming and creating great yarn is a labor of love for Francis Chester, who, with his wife Diane, bought his sheep farm in Virginia in 1968. Since then they have expanded their flocks and built their mill, producing beautiful traditional yarns in 4 different weights.
Owner Francis Chester likes to say that if you put his yarn to your ears, you can almost hear the sounds of life within it.
