This yarn came from our ewe, Rosamund. She has wool that is a lovely fawn color with brown based highlights. We had her sheared in March and hand washed, carded and spun her fleece into this lovely 2 ply yarn. This skein is 234 yards, and weighs 2.0 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. 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.
