This yarn came from a blend of two of our ewes, Lady Mary and Isobel.
Their wool is a rich moorit color and is very soft.
We sheared in March and I hand washed, carded and spun these fleeces into this lovely 2 ply yarn.
This skein is 384 yards, and weighs 5.2 oz.
Both of these ewes have AFD in the low 20's, which means they can be worn comfortably 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.
