RUSTIC WORSTED AND SPORTA 100% wool yarn blend of Rambouillet, Corriedale and Columbia wool from sheep raised in Colorado. The fibers are worsted spun into a single-ply yarn that is surprisingly strong, yet still lofty. The fibers have a micron count of 22-24 making it soft to the touch, and yet it retains a rustic look, emphasized by our hand dyeing technique. Our sport and worsted wools are great for felting - we suggest hand washing only for non-felted items. All colorways are available in our RUSTIC sport and worsted weight yarns.Ball Size: FLUX & Semi-Solid: 50g/1.76 oz balls - Worsted (77 meters/85 yards) & Sport (133 meters/145 yards)OMBRÉ: 75g/2.64 oz balls - Worsted (115 meters/127 yards) & Sport (199 meters/217 yards)
REFINED (available at select retailers)A blend of 70% merino and 30% silk. This yarn is a smooth 3-ply with a luxurious soft hand. We specifically developed this custom yarn to be lofty without pilling. The silk adds just a hint of sheen. It is available in worsted, sport and fingering weights and is made here in the USA (coming later in 2014). We also offer a 70% Alpaca and 30% Silk Lace yarn from Peru as part of the Refined collection.
