This Director’s Cut is sponsored exclusively by Sheepspot, an artisinal yarn company offering sustainably-produced, breed-specific, hand-dyed yarns and fibers.
Most of Sheepspot’s products start with wool from small purebred flocks in Canada or the US. Many are made from fleeces we pick by hand. We get to know the shepherds and their flocks, and we pay a fair price for the wool. Then we have our fiber gently processed by mills right here in North America, using as few chemicals as possible.
We love supporting small-scale, sustainable agriculture and local mills. We love knowing that the sheep who grow our wool lead good lives. And we love giving the fiber-obsessed the option to buy beautiful yarns and fibers that they can feel great about working with.
