We raise rare breeds of sheep and Alpacas on our Pacific Northwest farm. After shearing, we take our fibers to a local fiber mill where she turns them into luscious yarns like this one. This is a 3 ply worsted weight naturally colored Cotswold wool yarn. Each skein is approximately 3 ounces.
Here is what the Livestock Conservancy has to say about this rare breed of sheep:
Cotswold fleece hangs in locks, and the fibers have a lustrous, silky sheen. A heavy forelock falling over the face is a characteristic of the breed. The fleece has a seven to thirteen inch staple length and weighs thirteen to fifteen pounds. Fiber diameter ranges from 33-42 microns."
