The Wool Wagon is a mobile boutique traveling around Island County Farmers Markets. Self-described “professional yarn temptress” Willow Mietus, hand dyes yarn and sells it under the name Willow on the Water. Most of Mietus’ yarn is $30 for a skein, a loosely coiled length of yarn. The vast majority is made from extra fine Merino sheep white wool because “it’s ridiculously soft and squishy,” but Mietus has dyed yarn made of wool from goats, yaks and camels.
