This yarn came from our ewe, O'Brien.
She has wool that is a nice moorit color and her wool is very soft.
I had her sheared in March and hand washed, carded and spun her fleece into this lovely 2 ply yarn.
This skein is 175 yards, and weighs 1.8 oz.
We micron test our flock every year, O'Brien's wool has an AFD of 21.7, so that means it is soft enough to wear next to the skin.
We breed for fine wooled shetlands with very crimpy fibers, so you can wear the wool next to the skin and it is bouncy and elastic.
