Mindful Folk Farm Yarn: Mulberry
This blend of mulberry-colored yarn comes from some of the more ‘senior' members of the farm. It is rustic with a homespun look, and knits up beautifully into socks, hats, sweaters and more. Once scoured after an object is complete, the mohair in the yarn takes on a wonderful halo.

Mindful Folk Farm is a small, Maine-based fiber company run by Taproot Contributor Hannah Welling. All the yarn is made from her naturally raised animals, and hand dyed in small batches using natural, farm grown, foraged or sustainably sourced materials. Hannah can be found most days homeschooling her two children, fiber farming, working in the garden, or photographing farm life and Maine culture. Find more at mindfulfolkfarm.com.
