A 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 Freia’s hand dyeing technique.
Balls come with the colors wound both ways - that is, some are A>B>C and some are C>B>A. We've checked (we're nerds) and it's the same yardage of each color regardless of which color is in the middle vs on the outside of the ball. If you have a preference about which color is on the inside/outside of the ball let us know in the notes section at checkout. We'll do our best to accommodate if possible, though we don't always have both options in stock. :)
Cakes come ready to knit with. They do not need to be wound.
This yarn is dyed by hand and will vary from skein to skein and batch to batch. Each one is an unique work of art full of subtle variation and beauty, so your skein will differ from the one pictured. To achieve the most even possible color distribution, consider alternating skeins while working your project.
Please buy enough for your entire project all at once. We will do our best to select skeins from the same dye lot or, if there is no dye lot, skeins that visually match. If you add multiple skeins of the same yarn to your cart you'll be prompted at checkout to select how to proceed if we have concerns about skeins matching.
While colors shown are accurate to the best of our ability, computer monitors and dye lots both vary so the skeins you receive may differ from what is shown.
