This yarn makes beautiful, cushy fabric. We do not know the breed of sheep used. Our guess is something like Corriedale – it is not the softest wool like Merino, but still suitable for scarves and shawls unless you have very sensitive skin. This yarn would be great for sweaters, mittens, hats, and blankets.
Care instruction: Hand wash, with cold water and mild detergent. Dry flat. The dyes are properly fixed, but we rinse lightly in the interest of conserving precious water. Excess colour may bleed slightly for the first few washes. Please wash with similar coloured items. We strongly recommend to do wash fastness test if you are using different colours together. (Sandwich a small piece of yarn in white paper towel, wet them together, and leave them until dry. If the colour is transferred to the paper towel, you may want to wash the yarn prior to use.)
Please note that the colours may slightly vary for each skein because of the nature of hand dyed yarn.
We did our best to reproduce true colours on the monitor, but please note that the colours may vary slightly depending on your monitor settings.
