Our hand-dyed yarn packs come in several beautiful colorways so you can create a multi-colored garment or weaving from your favorite combinations! This is great yarn for making outer wear such as hats, mittens, scarfs, and socks, and for including into colorful weaving projects! You can see it knit or woven up in some of the items here in our shop.
This 2-ply yarn is spun up from a blend of Romney, Jacob, Coopworth and Border Leister fleeces. We shear each spring when the sheep have several inches of wool. The longer staple length makes a beautiful strong and lustrous yarn that'll wear very well.
Each Colorway Pack comes with 5 ounces & approx. 165 yards
Recommended knitting needle size: US 7-9

The yarn is hand dyed on our farm in three pound batches using Greener Shades Heavy Metal Free Acid Dyes. The gold colored yarn in this colorway is dyed with goldenrod flowers harvested in the late summer from our farm meadow lands.
About our flock:
Our sheep are a highlight to our everyday. They are friendly, and always happy to greet you with a nose kiss (okay, maybe there are a few that prefer to just walk away when the offer arises). They receive plenty of good fresh country air, clean water, fresh grass, and organic hay that we cut here on the farm every spring and summer. They love eating treats like organic barley or oats, kelp, and kale. Furthermore, they always get lots of special attention later in the year when all us fiber enthusiasts on the farm can't keep our fingers out of the wool on their backs!
