Avid knitter and hand spinner Whitney Hayward began making yarn in her Maine home to de-stress from her busy life as a photojournalist. One thing led to another, and soon she was sampling wools from farms all over New England. As she spun, she fell again and again for each new breed, delighting in the variations in fleeces from breed to breed and even sheep to sheep, and how different spins affected each fiber type. Today, the yarns are mill-spun and commercially dyed, but the commitment to breed-specific yarns, made in small batches, from as close to home as possible remains.https://thestonewool.co
