A brand new 2-ply Sport Weight yarn from Stonehedge Fiber Mills, and one of the best, 100% merino wools on the market! This yarn is currently available in very limited colors and quantities. Check frequently for new colors and inventory.
Shepherd's Wool Sport Weight 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 Sport Weight also felts very well.
