From those at Stonehedge Fiber Mill - Shepherd’s Wool Yarn is made from a wonderfully soft Merino top, the softest of sheep's wool. It is washed, combed into top and dyed to our specifications. We then pindraft it, often blending additional colors (all the heathery colors are blends), and spin it on our machines.
The three ply worsted weight yarn is spun to 1000 yards per pound, which in 4-ounce skeins is 250 yards per skein. This yarn is worsted spun, meaning it’s very very smooth and almost shiny in appearance. It will give great stitch definition for intricate patterns such as lace, cables, and knit/purl patterns.
