One of the best worsted, 100% merino wools on the market! Shepherd's Wool Worsted is made from a wonderfully soft merino top, which is the softest of sheep's wool. 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. Shepherd's Wool Worsted also felts very well.
