A beautiful 2-ply DK weight yarn made from our 100% merino wool. The light milk chocolaty color takes dyes very well and produces very beautiful, earthy shades. In this case, a bright earthy green!
The fleeces in this yarn were washed on our farm with a fragrance free, biodegradable detergent. It has also been washed with a fragrance free, biodegradable detergent since returning from the mill. Due to the gentle care of the wool that went into this yarn, there is still a little bit of lanolin content.
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!
