Manitoulin Island is located in Ontario, Canada in Lake Huron. Manitoulin Island is the world's largest freshwater island.
Freshisle Fibers base yarns are hand dyed wool yarns with all the wool coming from local farmers' sheep.
Freshisle Fibers was dyeing self-striping yarns long before Abi Grasso. The idea is from Kathleen Taylor's book - Yarns to Dye For.

Well, that's excellent to know. As a proud Canadian, I'm glad to see some interesting local yarn options.

And I'm always interested to know more about my Canadian geography (which is woefully lacking).

So readers who are looking for self-striping yarn can definitely head over to Freshile Fibers.

This is my best friend's yarn (Abi Grasso) :) She is AMAZING! I'm glad to see so many people are loving her designs!!!

Very good blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any ideas? Appreciate it!
