Wild Yarns in Denver

I was interviewing Becky Weed of Thirteen Mile Sheep and Wool Co. about what it takes to get wool certified organic when I mentioned how nice it would be if a Denver yarn shop carried her natural and plant-dyed yarns. It just so happens that a brand new yarn shop called Wild Yarns was not only carrying Thirteen Mile's yarns, they had had such a strong response in thier initial two weeks, they had to reorder.

As soon as our conversation ended, I googled "Wild Yarns." Imagine my delight to discover  the shop is walking distance from our house!

When Nake-id IT returned home from work, I regaled him with the news. His excitement had a slightly different cast.

Probably because he knew I'd be bringing home items like those pictured above: Thirteen Mile worsted in ripe plum made with organic wool, spun with vegetable oils in a solar-powered mill. The farm is also predator friendly. This yarn is so clean and natural it all but bleats! (I'm thinking pencil skirt, herringbone stitch pattern.)

Wild Yarns is a sweet little jewel of a shop, featuring locavore yarns, things you've never seen except on Etsy. Their shop is tucked in between Starlet and Highland Healing Arts on 32nd Avenue in a cozy turn-of-the-last-century space. Go give owners Kelly and Anna a visit.
