Our yarn has been designed from fleece to finished fiber. We started with a desire to create a yarn that was super soft, ethically sourced, environmentally friendly, naturally hand dyed, and with great stitch definition. To help avoid pilling, with all that softness, and to create great definition, we had our yarn spun into four-ply. It is also our desire to support other small businesses in the U.S. that are committed to sustainability and craft. Our fleece is 18 micron 100% merino wool from a farm in the U.S. The family-owned mill and dye house is not too far away and is as committed to the environment as we are. By the very nature of naturally hand-dyed non- super wash yarns, each hank is a little bit different with rich variegation.
