editor’s note

Dear Reader, “That’s the thing about home—you take it for granted until you move away.” My mom has said this more times than I can count throughout my life. When I was little, we moved from Rhode Island to North Carolina, leaving behind our extended family, friends, and the only life all of us knew. At the time, I was too young to understand what she was talking about and what she would miss: long summer days at the beach, clam cakes and chowder, the smell of fallen autumn leaves, Sunday family dinner, and New England. It wasn’t until I was well into my adulthood that I realized how much I also missed “home.” I pined for the colonial architecture, the ocean, my family, and the rooted history and traditions of the…

richer colorwork with heathers

Made in Maine at the Jagger Brothers Mill, Jagger Spun’s Heathers are a unique line of 100% wool yarns. Initially developed in the 1960s for commercial menswear manufacturers, the Heathers began with a dark palette of browns, blues, grays, and greens. Over time, the line has evolved. Using 14 top-dyed base colors, Jagger Spun has developed 37 distinct heathered colors. The simplest colors may have only 2 base colors (like blending yellow + natural = Maize). More complex colors such as Sunset, Midnight, or Slate blend up to 7 bases. Why blend so many colors? For the unique richness of heathered yarns, of course! Even in a solid project, the blend of colors within the yarn gives the knitting depth and increases the visual interest. Heathered yarns also shine in colorwork, where…

wool on the reservation

Navajo activist Roberto Nutlouis has been asking big questions: Can the tribe transition away from a fossil fuel–based economy? How can members of the tribe maintain their pastoralism? If their traditional lifeways were built on a reverence for the environment and all living beings, how can they honor that reverence and still participate in the global economy? One possible answer is sheep. In 2012, Nutlouis, who serves as the restorative economy program coordinator for the environmental justice organization Black Mesa Water Coalition, invited Stanley Strode from Mid-States Wool Growers Cooperative Association and Peter Hagerty of Peace Fleece to the Navajo Nation to buy wool. Nutlouis hoped that a wool-buy event would help ranchers understand what their wool might be worth beyond what the neighboring trading posts pay. Organized quickly without much time…

ranch to rug

The Navajo Churro is a breed in search of a fiber market. Revered by the Diné people as a life-sustaining gift, Churro sheep have been providing them lean, sweet meat and wool for centuries. Churro are dual-coated sheep with rough outer guard hairs covering a softer undercoat. A third type of dye-resistant fiber, kemp, makes up a small percentage of a Churro’s fleece. Lustrous and durable with a long staple, Churro wool has little lanolin, takes natural dye well, and can be spun from raw fleece without carding. From the wool, Navajo spinners and weavers have created blankets and rugs evocative of the desert. Former U.S. government policies designed to eradicate the Churro have created a flock composed of many mixed-breed animals with shorter staples and more lanolin, making them less…
