A beautiful 2-ply DK weight yarn is from our 100% merino wool. The light milk chocolatey color of our Moorit merinos is super pretty. It's hard to want to dye it, but, when dyed it produces lovely caramelized shades...in my own (sweet tooth) definition. Like most merino yarns, it has next to no itch, and it produces very warm garments.
The fleeces in this yarn were washed by me 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, but only enough to enjoy with one's nose.
Each skein is approx. 4 oz and 130 yards.
**please note that due to having our fleeces processed at a small mill, there will be slight variation in the weight and yardage from skein to skein.
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!
