I am holding CT's Kivalina, my newest IAGARB registered doe.
She was tested on November 6, 2010 under IAGARG standards with a
wool weight of 522 grams over a 90 day period and gross annual wool
weight of 2088 grams!
Here I am with Raspberry Farm's Gabriel. She is another newly IAGARB
registered doe. Also tested on November 6, 2010, she tested with a wool
weight of 450 grams over a 90 day period and gross annual weight of
My objective is to consistently use breeding stock that is registered and
produce animals that meet the IAGARB standard of perfection.
As an IAGARB member, one benefit is to participate in co-op mill runs. As
a group, we produce two types of luxurious yarn. The wool comes from
small farms (IAGARB members) all over North America and processed
at Zeillinger Wool in Michigan, USA...yes, an American made product!
IAGARB Frost is a three ply sock yarn with a blend of 50% angora, 30%
nylon, and 20% superwash merino.
IAGARB Blizzard is a two ply yarn with a blend of 85% angora and 15%
Both yarns are a heavy fingering weight in skeins weighing approximately
2 ounces and are approximately 200 yards. It will knit in gauges from 4-8
stitches per inch. As you knit, the yarn will bloom. The IAGARB Frost may
be machine washed but it is recommended that both IAGARB Frost and
IAGARB Blizzard be hand washed
All yarn and roving is hand dyed by me...please visit my web store
