Raincloud and Sage Origin
Origin is a 3 ply, DK weight yarn produced in central Germany. The fibre for this yarn is sourced from small flocks in villages surrounding the Marburg-Hinterland area, where Raincloud & Sage have their HQ. The fibre was previously not being used but rather often thrown away or burned, due to the fact that it has little value to wool brokers and it can be difficult for shepherds with small herds to sell their fleece. This is truly an exciting yarn, in that it makes a wonderful, useable product out of an already existing resource!
