As the world grows smaller many of us are trying to live within our means more and more. One such way is through community supported agriculture. Associations have sprung up across the globe offering everything from local co-op gardens to banana harvesting. The newest CSA craze available on etsy provides the opportunity for individuals to buy shares in a wool harvest from a farm on Martha's Vineyard.
"After shearing, we'll let our friends at the mill work their magic and soon you'll receive your share of the harvest," MVKNITS said of the project. "The number of skeins, yardage, etc., will depend on the size of the clip but we are limiting our shareholders this first year to ensure that everyone gets a bountiful supply. You can choose to take all of your share in one kind of yarn or receive a sampler with some of each of the yarns we produce, including mohair, kid mohair, Cormo and Cotswold. Just type 'one yarn' or 'sampler' in the 'Buyers Message to Seller' box when you check out. We also have Spinner's shares available- both roving and raw fleece."
