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. :)
Great news! Cakes come ready to knit with. They do not need to be wound.
