PCC Yarn

We have a little bit of this super special PCC Yarn in the shop, and it's making me so happy. These skeins of wooly goodness come from the Vet Tech program at Portland Community College. Students in the program learn to care for a variety of animals, from cats to cows. 
The wool from the sheep used to be thrown away, but now it is processed into this rustic sheepy fingering weight wool. I doubt we will get too much more of this, so pop in soon if you're interested. It doesn't get much more local than this!
