This yarn is bulky enough for sweaters or hats, yet it is soft enough to wear next to your skin. We have observed that items made from all wool yarn like ours hold their shapes and warmth much better than items made with synthetic yarns.
This yarn is its natural creamy white color.
This soft wool yarn comes from our small flock of Clun Forest sheep located in rural Southwest Wisconsin. During the summer, the sheep have plenty of grass to eat and in the winter, clean hay.
In late May, they are shorn before the hot weather sets in. We hand clean (skirt) the fleeces after shearing. Heavenly Fibers in nearby Viroqua carefully washed, carded and spun the fleeces into this yarn.
