3-ply, with a nice firm twist. This yarn was spun in Wyoming from fine Merino wool sourced in Missouri. Perfect for all kinds of garments, and when knit at larger gauges will produce a soft fabric with a beautiful drape and bloom. And, like all our SoSoft™ yarns, it’s great for felting too!
Antique is made from Osage orange which is derived from the shredded wood of the tree Maclura pomifera. It grows throughout the south and central United States and was originally planted as a windbreak against erosion in the prairie states. Osage contains a yellow dye which results in true yellows to soft yellow greens.
