100% Wool Yarn. A soft and lofty bulky weight recycled wool yarn.
I would consider this next to skin soft for all but the most sensitive. These yarn would make a lovely hat, gloves or small sweater! The color is a deep navy, probably best shown in photo 2. It is three strands, loosely plied.
At 7 wraps per inch and ~600 yards per pound, this is a Bulky Weight Yarn.
Suggested uses- Knitting, crocheting, macrame, rug making and weaving.
I have a total of nearly 800 yards. That's 22 ounces, or nearly 1.5 pounds of wool. This is enough yarn for a small sweater, a lovely cabled wrap or a baby sized blanket. I have seperated the skeins into 3 sets. Please see the photos and descriptions below. Buy all three sets and save with a built in 15% discount!
Set 1: THE MONSTER! There are several small knots in the plies: 378 yards, 307 grams total in four skeins
Set 2: No known knots 182 yards, 142 grams
Set 3: 239 yards, 184 grams on two skeins. One with a known small knot Skein 1- 118 yards, 157 grams Skein 2- 82 yards, 66 grams

What to expect from yarn recycled from a sweater (please read!): * The yardage is manually counted. To account for errors I have deducted my totals by 5%. This way I don't over promise on yardage. You will be getting the yardage listed and then some.
* Washing- I wash and rinse the yarn several times. I use tea tree and lavender oils for their antimicrobial properties. I also use added lanolin in the rinse water for wool yarn. Years of wearing and dry cleaning strips the wool of this natural softening oil. You may notice a slight tea tree or lanolin smell remaining. I am very sensitive to smells and nether of these bother me. If you are worried, please convo me. I will happily rinse the yarn several more times before shipping if needed.
* Hanging- Once rinsed the yarn is hung to dry in a shady spot in my yard. I do not weight the skeins to maintain the yarn's loft and bounce. As a result the yarn likely have subtle kinks that remain after being knit. This will not affect the usefulness of the yarn
*Some commercially knit yarn can be a little weaker than what you may be used to. This won't be a problem unless you are planning on using this yarn under high tension. I have made a note of the yarn's strength in the description. I am glad to send you more information including a pull test video if you'd like!
* Manufacturers join new a new cone of yarn with small knots. If I come across a knot sometimes I will leave it in the skein. I have noted these knots above. I can, however, miss a know. I try very hard to find them all but please understand that you may find one unexpectedly. The knots are usually tiny and were never noticeable in the finished knit sweater.
The small print: I have a cat. No dogs and no smoking. The cat is kept away from the yarn Please allow for variation in screen colors. Please ask any questions before ordering. If color is critical I can send you a sample and I will hold the yarn until you've received the sample. Convo me I accept returns only if I have misrepresented anything. I am not responsible for you not carefully reading the description or policies. Ask me anything. I am quick to respond to questions!
