About Our Yarn

Nutmeg Fibers brings quality wool to knitters and crafters of all kinds. Nutmeg Fibers are hand dyed with natural dyes in sweater quantity batches. Nutmeg Fibers are made with wool, alpaca and cotton all sourced in the USA. We use only the best of US Fibers, milled just for us at a state of the art, Leed-Certified mill, as well as working farm, that promotes eco-consciousness within fiber production. Nutmeg Fibers is a place to find wonderful, hand-dyed yarns, thoughtfully crafted patterns, tutorials on knitting and dyeing, fiber arts supplies that have been made for love and more!

In late 2018, Nutmeg Fibers launched our Wooland member-based community: a place for lovers of fiber traditions. It’s a place where knowledge is passed along, so that these traditions can stay alive. Those that are members in Wooland directly support our ability to provide free tutorial content on the Nutmeg Fibers website, as well as other wonderful things that can be discovered in Wooland.

At Nutmeg Fibers, we believe that whole garments can be made from natural dyes. We believe that wool doesn’t have to be superwash to be useable in everyday life. We love that we can feel the lanolin on the fibers, and that we can smell the fields that the sheep walked in on the undyed yarn when it comes to us from the mill. We love that bits of dyestuff sometimes come off on our hands when we work with fibers dyed with traditional methods. We love the idea that our fiber-loving ancestors years ago may have used the same methods to produce a garment from start to finish as we are using today!

DyeLots

While we dye in small batches, we still dye in sweater quantities so that you can make anything your heart desires with our naturally dyed yarns. Dye lot # is stamped on the back of your skein's label, just below the sticker. If you are hoping to find a certain vat # to match, you can do so when you order. When packaging orders, we always do our best to send skeins from the same dye lot when more than 1 skein is ordered. 


Sales Tax

Sales tax is only charged for those customers that are located in Tennessee, since that is where we are located as well.
