A rare mix of wool: Gotland / Teeswater This is my second fleece of this mix. The first I bought this Fall at SAFF; this fleece is directly from the farmer in Virginia. Both fleeces have been a delight to spin.
The fleece has the best of both breeds:. Strength and softness from the Gotland half. Silky curls from the Teeswater half.
Right off the sheep--washed and spun and then washed again. That's all.
I spun the locks onto a mohair thread. Corespinning provides strength and stability to the yarn.
There are 46 yards in this skein.. The yarn itself is super bulky but the skein is soft and light.
Knitters: use large needles with this one--perhaps size 15 or larger and a plain pattern
Thanks from all of us at KnoxFarmFiber.
Love, love, love it!!! I'm addicted to this yarn! :)

Came very fast in New condition. Beautiful yarn. Thank you
I will send your purchase out the next day after payment is received. No fancy packaging for me--just tissue paper inside an environmentally-conscious mailing bag. It's compostable! I understand international customs rules and will fill out forms accordingly. I will ship pkg air mail but not priority to international addresses. And Canada? No problem. Formerly I took your package across the Bridge to mail. Turns out it is less expensive and faster to mail from the Bflo airport post office--so that is what I'll do.
Please pay promptly, so I can send your purchase out right away. Paypal and credit cards make a sale finish quickly. If you prefer a check or money order, that's ok. I need to receive your check within 7 days of sale or I will cancel the sale. Any problems, just convo me.
Returns & exchanges
I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. I think it is difficult to buy yarn online, when the best part of buying is touching, smelling, seeing in different lights. I will refund the full price for any yarn skein that has not been unwound, or any full-wt unspun roving. And if it never arrives at all? Let me know right away and we'll try to find a good solution. Thanks.
