These 5 yard mini-skeins are perfect if you'd like to see or feel our millspun yarn before purchasing.
This yarn was produced and spun at Blue Mountain Fiber Mill in Harrisburg, PA, with wool from our own Tunis sheep. Each 4 ounce skeins is approximately 400 yards. This soft, beautiful off-white yarn has lots of lofty bounce and takes dye wonderfully.
Please handwash your finished product in cool water and lay flat to dry. To felt, wash in hot water in the washing machine and machine dry.
I have found that Tunis wool needs more "encouragement" than other fibers to felt. This means it's more forgiving if you accidentally agitate your yarn or finished project, but if your intent is to make a felted project you may need additional cycles in the washer/dryer.
