Description

2-ply, with a soft twist. This yarn was spun in Wyoming from fine Merino wool sourced in Missouri.  Perfect for shawls and baby 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!

Cochineal originates from the Americas and was used by the Aztec and Mayan peoples for centuries. It is derived from an insect (Dactylopus coccus) that feeds on the nopal cactus. It is also the only natural red dye approved for use in food, drugs and cosmetics.
