Finnish Landrace Yarn
From our Finnish Landrace sheep. We have our wool processed into lace weight (2 ounce skeins, give or take) and a light sport weight yarn (4 ounce give or take). A limited yearly supply.
Even though "Elsie" looks black by the time shearing time comes around what she has to offer is a dark natural brown. Our girls are Natural and holistic. They eat local clover and grass and I hand shear them myself. It is difficult to get an exact weight as it depends upon how much moisture the yarn retains from the processing bath, local humidity, etc. I know sounds strange but this is natural fiber not man made and there are many variables. You might run across some vegetation, but this shows that it is NOT made in chine, IS home grown and we do not charge extra for this.
Needless to say Finn wool is very soft and can be worn next to the skin. It must be carefully washed in cool water or hot water WITHOUT agitation. Do not abruptly change water temperatures.
