Now In Stock! - Schaefer Yarn Company

I am very pleased to announce that One Planet Yarn and Fiber now will be stocking Schaefer Yarns.  So far I have added in 3 different yarns with several more to go.  They should all be posted by tomorrow, I hope.

Here is the info on Schaefer-

While The Schaefer Yarn Company is just 18 years old, we have been hand dyeing variegated yarn commercially since 1980 - first in Mendocino, California, then in New York City. We now live and work in Interlaken, a village just north of Ithaca in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York, where Erich and I started Schaefer Yarn by ourselves.

Now it takes a family of 11 to bring Schaefer Yarn to you, and yet each and every skein of yarn is still individually hand painted, just as it was in the beginning. We coined the phrase handpainted because of the painterly way we approached dyeing.  The result: 45 unique colorways available in all of our wool and wool blend yarns, plus 18 colors in the finest pima cotton in the world, Laurel, a worsted weight yarn, and Susan, a delicious sport weight. Our silk,  Andrea, is available in 63 colors. We are thrilled to introduce the latest fiber to our line, Audrey, a luscious fingering weight, single ply silk/merino wool yarn.   Half of our yarns are made exclusively for us in the USA.  We support all our fibers with patterns to knit or crochet, and weavers will find our yarns a pleasure to work with as well.

Happy Knitting!
