My yarn is available in a medium (worsted) weight and fingering weight. All of my yarn is 100% wool, and all of the wool is from my own sheep. The color of the yarn is the natural color of the sheep. All of my yarn is sold in 50 gram skeins and the price is $9.00 per skein.
The medium yarn is a two-ply and 50 grams equals approximately 100 yards. Do make your own gague swtach, but as for me, I knit:
6 Stitches per inch with US #5
5.5 Stitches per inch with US #7
4.5 Stitches per inch with US #8
The fingering yarn is also two-ply and 50 grams equals approximately 235 yards. I knit nine stitches per inch with this yarn using #1 needles. Currently only Slate Gray is available in fingering weight.
I don't sell any dyed yarn. All of my yarn is the natural color of the sheep.
The lot number is the year the sheep was sheared. I sell yarn by color, but if you are trying to match a specific lot number please put the lot number you want in the comment area of your order, or send me an e-mail to ask if I have any skeins of a specific lot in stock. Once a lot is sold out it is truly sold out. Your hair changes a bit each year, and so does the sheep's!
