Description

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!

Cream is made from Weld (Reseda luteola), which is also known as dyer’s rocket, dyer’s weed, woold, and yellow weed. It has been in use as a textile dye since around 1000 BCE, and although native to Eurasia it can be found throughout North America, often as a common weed. It produces strong yellows which are very clear and bright
