Brown Sheep Yarns are permanently moth-proofed using a non-insecticide; from their FAQ: "We use a non-insecticide chemical called Ecolan CEA to moth-proof our wool. It is added to the dye bath at the same time as the dyes and is “permanent” in the sense that it will not wash, rub, or dry clean off the wool. The treatment works as an insect resist agent by making the wool protein unpalatable to the wool moth larvae."

About Brown Sheep

100 years ago the Brown Sheep Company began as a family farm in the North Platte River Valley. E.W. Brown raised a small flock of sheep on this farm and passed the tradition down to his son, Harlan Brown. Harlan continued to raise sheep until the mid-1970's when he decided to switch gears from farming and raising sheep to processing wool into yarn. January of 1980 saw the arrival of the first truckloads of spinning equipment and by July 4th, Farmer Brown had spun his first ball of yarn!

What started out as supplying traditional Navajo weavers in the Southwestern US grew into a nationwide expansion as yarn shops all over the U.S. began carrying Brown Sheep Yarn. By the late 1990s, Harlan's daughter Peggy Jo and her husband Robert Wells joined the growing company. This new generation took the mill to the next level, advancing the technology used and updating the equipment. By the early 2000s, they developed an environmentally-friendly system for recycling the mill's dye water, putting Brown Sheep Company on the map in a whole new way.

Although Brown Sheep Company no longer raises sheep on the family farm, they are proud to support U.S. wool growers and purchase the majority of their wool from Colorado and Wyoming. Looking to the future, Brown Sheep Company will continue to innovate, adapt, and develop new products that resonate with the next generation of knitters and handcrafters.
