Baby soft and full of bounce, Lambie Pie yarn is made from the first clipping of wool from our snowy white lambs and blended with silky alpaca. Spun at Rosebud River Fibre Mill in Alberta, Lambie Pie Yarn is a decadent 2 ply Dk weight yarn with a whopping 325 yards.
These naturally dyed skeins of Lambie Pie yarn use leaves, flowers, roots, nuts, mushrooms, and insects. Most are grown on our farm or carefully foraged in our mountain valley. Sometimes, we will source ethically grown natural dyes further afield.
This Lambie Pie yarn would be ideal in any knits for babies, for children, and for those with the desire for luxuriously soft wool against their skin.

Our wool is grown by our beloved flock of fibre sheep here on our little farm in the mountains of British Columbia. We take great care in raising our animals and we spend hours handpicking all fleeces before we send them off for processing to a family-run mill in Alberta. You can be sure that your yarn has been handled with love in all stages of its production.
Due to the slow method of transforming raw wool into yarn, each small batch is one of a kind and will reference the individual sheep who grew the fibre. Our yarn is sustainably and naturally dyed using mostly homegrown and locally harvested plants. Hand dyeing with natural dyes leaves room for subtle differences in dye lots so please ensure you purchase the right amount for your project. It is a good idea to alternate rows when you move from skein to skein to ensure a smooth transition.
Enjoy using Wool Maiden's farm raised Lambie Pie yarn. We hope that the garment you create brings great joy and perhaps becomes an heirloom piece in your wardrobe.
