Description

3-ply, slightly felted with a subtle variation in diameter throughout each skein. This yarn was spun in Ohio from fine Merino wool sourced in Missouri.  Use for everything from soft, warm socks to sweaters and has a nice drape when knit at larger gauges. 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.
