Beautiful black plum with bits of blue. Gorgeous and deep. Pairs beautifully with Wild mustard and Natural Antarctica White.
Peace Fleece is is a good, sturdy working yarn that is very warm, perfect for sweaters or vests. It will surprise you after you wash your project. This yarn feels stiff while knitting, but relaxes the more it is washed & worn, quickly becoming a favorite!
Hand wash in cool water & lay to dry unless you want to felt your project. This wool yarn does felt if you want it to. :-)
Another intriguing and useful property of wool is its ability NOT to catch fire! In its natural untreated state wool does not burn, but instead, forms a self-insulating char that prevents the further flame spread and extinguishes itself (wool has a very high inflammation point of 570 - 600°C due to its high Nitrogen content of ~16%). Wool is self-extinguishing because of its high Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI=25.2), which means to completely burn wool an oxygen content of 25.2% is necessary whereas healthy air only has a 21% content. Yeah, I know...you knew that didn't you? :-D
