At the Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck, where New York Sheep and Wool is held every mid October, there is a gorgeous sugar maple tree nestled on a small hill between the Horticulture building and some of the barns. It's near the line for the apple cider donuts and every year I've been to Rhinebeck, this particular tree is in perfect fall foliage - bright oranges and yellows with hints of burgundy and spots of black. Our Rhinebeck Signature Blend is inspired by this lone tree in the midst of one of the best fiber festivals in the US and a destination for so many individuals in the fiber arts.
Rhinebeck contains 75% Merino wool, 12.5% Tussah silk and 12.5% Flax and is sold in increments of 4 oz.
Care: Handwash in cold water with an appropriate wool wash. Lay flat to dry.
