I have fallen in love with Natural Fiber Producers sport weight yarn! It is made from a blend of cotton, alpaca, and wool. This blend results in a yarn that is delightful to work with and luxurious to the touch. Named after state flowers, this collection of yarns has some gorgeous colors to choose from.

 Natural Fiber Producers is an agricultural cooperative made up of  those who raise Sheep, Alpaca, Angora, Buffalo, Musk Ox, and Mohair in the United States and Canada. By assisting with commercial fiber processing at a reduced cost, the Co-op is offering the opportunity for sustainability and enhanced profitability to its fiber producing owners.

I am impressed with Natural Fiber Producers goals:
NFP was founded in 2007 as an agricultural cooperative. Our products are made from member fiber. We are proud to report that all of our products are processed here in the United States from fiber grown in the U.S. and Canada. It is our goal that 100% of the wholesale price is returned to the farm.

This cotton blend yarn from Natural Fiber Producers is very easy on your hand to crochet or knit with. I never encountered broken yarn pieces, knots, or tangles. Ordering on their website is very easy and their customer service is fantastic!

What I love best about this yarn is that with each skein we purchase, we are helping to sustain small family fiber farms and textile mills across the US.
