Nassau is a sport weight yarn which comes from our flock of Shetland sheep. All our yarns are natural-color... just the way our Heritage and Rare Breed sheep grew it for you. This one is a lovely warm brown produced by our our Shetland Nassau. It's so squishy and soft!! Each skein is approximately 250 yds.
All of our wool is grown on our PA Century Farm which has been in my family for over 100 years. The farm is also on the National Register of Historic Places. We are committed to raising the more unusual livestock, rather than following the crowd and raising the big commercial sheep with yucky wool and tasteless meat. We hope you will support us in our mission.
