Gray Gotland Yarn
Gotland sheep produce lustrous long curls in varying shades of gray from light silver to deep charcoal. The yarn has a very silky handle and a lovely drape when knit. This light shade is a true heathered gray, reminiscent of the mist that forms over the mountains on our farm in Vermont. The mill spun this wool in a 3 ply worsted weight. Each skein weighs approximately 3 oz. with ~110-120 yards to the skein. We have a limited number of skeins, so please order for your entire project.

Vermont Maple Syrup
All natural Vermont maple syrup….Vermonters call it liquid gold. We put it in and on everything- from coffee and tea to baked goods to oatmeal to a bowl of ice cream. Our farmstay guests enjoy waffles and our own maple syrup in the mornings too!
On our farm, we make our own maple syrup the old fashioned way with buckets on trees and a little evaporator in our tiny sugarhouse. We tap the trees when the daytime temperatures are above freezing and the nighttime temperatures are below freezing. We gather the sap late in the afternoon and then boil by night in our wood fired evaporator. We use dead wood that has fallen on our property to fuel the evaporator. It takes 40 gallons of clear maple sap to make one gallon of maple syrup. Our syrup is filtered and then bottled in plastic jugs for easy shipping from our sugarhouse to your home.
Every year, we have just a little extra to share. Give it a try! You will wonder why it took you so long to discover 100% natural maple syrup!

Gourd Yarn Bowl
Our yarn bowls are made from gourds grown on an Amish farm in Pennsylvania. They are then hand cut with an opening in the top and a slot for your yarn. Each gourd is then cleaned and sanded before painting with ink. The inside of the gourds have been sanded and then either stained with black walnuts, or decoupaged with silk fabric or paper. The gourds have been weighted to make them more stable.
They are just lovely with rich color. The gourds vary in size but measure between 6-7 inches at the opening. Combine with a skein of our Gotland yarn and you will have a wonderful gift for a knitter! Colors may vary.
