Item details

This listing is for 1 skein (100 grams) of Be Sweet's soft, Handspun Merino yarn in black.

I have 1 total for sale. (I found out I have a wool allergy, otherwise I'd use it myself :) Ships from a smoke-free home.

From the company:
“This 100% pure merino wool comes from sheep that graze the hills and valleys near Capetown, South Africa, the first country outside of Europe to raise merinos. Once the sole property of the king of Spain, these sheep were introduced to South Africa in the late 18th century and strengthened via cross-breeding with Australian Wanganella and Pippin merinos in the 19th century. The approximately 18 million merinos in South Africa produce a soft, lustrous and non-itchy fleece considered the “gold standard” by which all wool is judged.

Wool production has a stabilizing effect on sheep farming economies; all animals produce this continually renewing material, which supports the production of lamb for food. Hand spun and dyed, this yarn is an integral part of a sustainable economic program for underprivileged locals.

Enjoy this beautiful product knowing that you have brought hope into a South African community and that a part of your purchase is helping support the local school!"


Care Instructions: Hand wash, dry flat for best results.

The majority of proceeds from the sale of this item will go toward purchasing more materials (and shipping costs) for the comfort blankets I make for Project Linus in Hawaii and Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. http://www.ProjectLinus.org/ is a national non-profit that distributes handmade blankets to seriously ill & traumatized children & teens to help comfort them. As someone who has dealt with Chronic PTSD for more than 30 years, this is a cause that is close to my heart. Pine Ridge Reservation is the poorest area in the United States as well as one of the coldest, which is why I make warm blanket squares, hats, and scarves to donate there as well.

Please visit my other shop - http://DoniaLillyFineArt.etsy.com to see my fine art metal prints & canvas giclees.
(In my other life, I was a professional artist for 15+ years but can no longer paint due to my recent disability, so I took up crochet since I can do it laying down & easily pick up where I left off when I have to stop due to pain or fatigue).
