This 2-ply yarn is spun up from a blend of Romney, Jacob, Coopworth and Border Leicester fleeces. We shear each spring when the sheep have several inches of wool on them. The longer staple length makes a beautiful strong and lustrous yarn that'll wear very well. This is great yarn for making outer wear such as hats, mittens, scarfs, etc. You can see it knit or woven up in some of the items here in our shop.
The yarn is hand dyed on our farm in three pound batches using Greener Shades Heavy Metal Free Acid Dyes.
Each mini skein is approx. 1.7 ounces and 35 yards.
Recommended knitting needle size: US 7-9
We've done our best to depict the colors as truly as possible, however, due to differences in screen imaging there may be slight variations.
