Learn About Our Yarn Bases!
Our customers love that Southern Skeins buys all our fiber from ethically sourced cruelty-free (mueseling-free) farms and fiber mills. Some of our fiber come straight from a local farm in Madison County Florida (see our Farmstead line). We can send you a picture and name of the animal(s) your fiber came from!
Being in Florida has a lot of great benefits, solar dyeing and natural air drying being two of them! It is the “Sunshine State” after all, we believe in using the power of the sun to not only naturally dry our fiber but to also solar dye. We also practice water conservation during the dyeing process. Let us not forget about leftover dye and dye bath water - both are used to make beautiful one of a kind creations! Nothing is taken for granted and everything is used with intent.
