This Sheep Dreams yarn is a luscious blend of Wensleydale and Bluefaced Leicester fiber.
Each skein is approximately 220+ yards of DK or light worsted weight yarn. Recommended needle size of US 5-7 for 4 1/2-5 stitches per inch.
The fleeces used for this yarn have been grown here in the Bluegrass region of central Kentucky. Our sheep graze on lush green pastures during spring, summer and fall and are fed alfalfa/orchard grass hay during the winter. We do not use any growth hormones and only medicate when absolutely necessary. Battenkill Fiber Mill in New York has beautifully spun our fibers to retain softness and luster. The three shades offered are blended from the flock of sheep we've been shepherding with love on this farm for more than 20 years.
The colors available at this time are Gray (natural darker gray), Oatmeal (natural lighter gray) and White (natural white).
Lovely yarn that knits up beautifully. Super fast shipping.
