Updates from the farm + Our beautiful, beautiful Green Year!
Updated: Feb 28
Greetings from the farm,
It has been a week, since we made moved our Knitography Virtual Classroom Information and Support board to the new app.
I am hoping that friends of Knitography Farm have found it quiet within their emails, but more engaging and inspirational within this new communication platform.
I am looking forward to the result of our reflection to ensure that everyone is settling in.
And, just because it seems quiet here on my little farm website, it is far from it!
We are approaching the busiest season of the year, along on our little farm wheel.
I have introduced three new wool lines and full colour palettes within my farm shop.
We have made a start within our spring, traditional Norwegian genser course.
Our Epic Year Long MAL is going strong, and very soon we are, FINALLY, moving into advanced weaving using the advanced, heritage wool.
But the best news of all....I have launched my Green Year farm yarns!
Within this beautiful, small batch, green year...we celebrate the fleeces of our green year lambs, Ruben, Tuppi, Ulla, Supahbæ, together with Bulder, Tyttebær, Millie and Milo.
My heart aches for our sweet, sweet Ruben! We miss him so much!
But he made his beautiful contribution to this specially milled, rare, heritage wool
and we are grateful for the joy he brought each day to the farm and along on the path.
If you are interested in recreating the Selbuvotter from 1857, I have the possibility to access the natural wool from the mill. Please contact me directly.
Our heritage farm wool together with the same natural wool, create the authentic colours
to knit into the original, first pair of Selbuvotter.
As most of you know, our little farm sits on the same land/mountain, raising the same breed of sheep and wool, as the mother of the Selbu rose - Marit G. Emstad.
She walked the same paths with her little flock of sheep - knitting, weaving, spinning and creating traditional heirloom garments - just like me!
