This gradient spun yarn came from our ewe, Rosamund.
She has wool that is a lovely fawn color with brown based highlights.
I used the natural shift in color to create this gradient yarn.
We had her sheared in March and hand washed, carded and spun her fleece into this lovely 2 ply yarn.
This skein is 354 yards, and weighs 3.1 oz.
We micron test our flock every year, Rosamund's wool has an AFD of 23.8, so that means it is soft enough to wear next to the skin.
I include a photo of Rosamund with your order (its on the label). I've also added a few photos of Rosamund in this listing, as well as photos of her fiber from fleece to carded locks - all done by me in the process of creating this one of a kind yarn for you!
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.
