About Signe Ostby, Owner Valhalla Yarns
A lifelong knitter, Signe carries her childhood passion for knitting with her across the many diverse landscapes in life. On a quest for her perfect knitting yarn, she began breeding Cormo sheep as a way to add crimp and elasticity to the cashmere-soft alpaca she had already been raising. With exquisite crimp structure, fine micron counts, and consistent yields over 80% from raw to finished yarn, the fiber produced at Valhalla Farms not only reflects 25 years of thoughtful breeding choices but the personal devotion that is a defining attribute of Signe’s creative process.
