Pre-Order - 2020 Harvest Collection - mesh mittens
Mesh Mittens - one size fits most - perfectly snug, perfectly soft
99% suri alpaca
The response to our 2019 Harvest Knitwear Collection was met with more enthusiasm than we ever imagined! We sold most of it at local markets & didn't have much to offer online for our extended community!
For the 2020 Harvest Collection (which is currently growing on the herd!), we're trying something new by offering pre-orders. This is a great holiday gift option (for yourself or others) where you can give the gift of experience as you virtually participate in the process of taking it from raw fiber to your finished garment.
Here is the pre-order process & timeline-
Pre-orders will be taken through January 31, 2020, or sooner depending on availability.
Pre-orders made by December 17, 2019 will receive an info packet and glass ornament with etched farm logo (if selected) by December 25, 2019.
The herd will be shorn in early May 2020, and a harvest update will be emailed to all pre-orders shortly thereafter.
Pre-orders will be contacted to confirm size (if item is size dependent) in August 2020.
Pre-orders will be contacted in September 2020 to select a color hue from our natural dye palette of red, orange, yellow & purple, and to confirm shipping address (USA only).
Pre-orders will be shipped in November and December 2020.
At check out, please ensure you leave an email address that you actually check, as well as a good phone number. We will not share your info, we just want to be able to stay in contact to keep you updated.
LOCALS - Please use discount code LOCAL to remove shipping costs and I will meet you in Walla Walla, College Place or Milton Freewater to deliver.
Notes on the Collection
Probably the very best thing about each Harvest Collection is the collective manner in which it springs to life. It wouldn't be possible without all the wonderful, reliable, small American businesses that work alongside us each step of the way-
The herd enjoys tasty, high-quality hay grown just down the road & around the corner from us by our neighboring farmers, AJ and Briana, along with their two boys Keegan and Parker.
During the season, we rely on the professional, compassionate practitioners at the Animal Clinic of Walla Walla anytime a member of the herd needs extra care.
Vitamins, minerals, feed and miscellaneous supplies are made available by locally owned shops like Bordertown Feed & Supply, NW Farm Supply and Cascade Farm & Outdoor.
Once shorn, our raw fiber is expertly milled and spun into a very fine lace weight yarn by New Era Fiber Mill in Tennessee.
Finally, we work very closely with our friends at Evolution Knitwear in Kennewick, Washington, to design and fabricate each item made with our yarn on their high tech seamless knitting machines.
Every Harvest Collection not only feels good on your head, hands and neck, but it also feels good in your heart. Your purchase is more than an investment in a high quality, natural wardrobe, it is an investment in small farms and American labor.
