Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd's Wool Worsted
Product Description: Shepherd's Wool Yarn is made from a wonderfully soft Merino top. Merino is often said to be the softest of sheep's wool. It is washed, combed into top, and dyed to Stonehedge Fiber Mill's specifications. Stonehedge Fiber Mill then pindrafts it, often blending additional colors (all the heathery colors are blends), and spins it on their machines.
Note: if you need more of a color than we have in stock, please let us know, and we can special order more for you, ensuring that everything will be the same dye lot. This usually takes 2-3 weeks. We can also special order colors we do not currently carry.
Fairlight Fibers Notes: Shepherd's Wool is famously soft, almost cloud-like. The yarn is heavy and luscious and drapes beautifully. It is also known to pill if used in high-wear garments, so it may be best used in garments you are either willing to keep pill-free, or on objects that don't rub when worn, like shawls, hats, etc. It is absolutely next-to-the-skin soft, so it is perfect for anything from a cowl to a baby blanket.
