It's too cold in our alpine valley for peaches and other fruit to grow, but every year buyers go across the mountains to bring fresh melons, peaches, nectarines, and chili, that they sell along the roads or at the farmers' markets.  This is an old tradition that goes back generations, grandma told stories of trucks bringing fruit and chili and trading it for potatoes and lamb meat and wool.  


Worsted Yarn

3 oz skein

Approximately 200 yards


Color may vary slightly from the picture.  This beautiful worsted Merino yarn is wonderfully soft and fast to work up. Perfect for close-to-skin wear. Raised right here on Cactus Hill Farm, processed by Yampa Valley Fiberworks, and kettle-dyed on the farm. The natural variation in the kettle-dyed yarn will make a great, unique finished product.  Our colors vary by dye lot and yarn, so we encourage customers to purchase enough yarn to finish a project.
