The wool from our own flock of Merino sheep is triple-washed before the ladies of Handspun Hope begin creating yarn using the age-old craft of spinning with only wheels and hand tools. 

Please note, due to the characteristic of natural fibers, actual color may vary slightly between skeins. We recommend alternating skeins during knitting.  Hand wash, lay flat to dry in shade, and do not iron.

Handspun Hope is a sustainable brand committed to ethically-sourced materials and minimal environmental impact. Our sheep receive meticulous 24-hour care so they will continue producing quality fleeces for the ladies working for Handspun Hope. 

This project gives over 200 women, most of them widows and orphaned survivors of the Genocide against the Tutsi, dignified employment. Handspun Hope is a certified member of the Fair Trade Federation, which guarantees fair wages and working conditions for the artisans.
