Four corners yarnS: SUPPORTING INDIGENOUS AND RURAL SHEPHERDS AND ARTISANS IN THE FOUR CORNERS REGION
Four Corners Yarns was founded in October 2018 with the mission to support Indigenous and rural artists and shepherds in the Four Corners region of the United States. Four Corners Yarns places an emphasis on paying fair wages to their hand spinners, fair market prices to the shepherds that provide the wool, and sharing the stories of the spinners, shepherds, and cultures surrounding the wool.
Currently, Four Corners has a gorgeous line of hand-dyed roving and yarn. The Merino yarn offered is handspun by Navajo artisans. Later this year, Four Corners will launch its first run of mill produced yarn featuring a 50/50 blend of Navajo-Churro and Merino wool, locally sourced from the Four Corners region.
As part of the Flag Wool & Fiber Festival's online event, Four Corners is generously donating 25% of all sales indefinitely to the Navajo Nation Department of Health COVID-19 Fund. We encourage you to peruse their gorgeous roving and yarn. A purchase of their products supports so much--a female-run endeavor, collaborators being paid fair wages, Four Corners region fiber artists and shepherds, and Navajo Nation COVID-19 relief.
