Shepherd's Wool

From Stonehedge Fiber Mill in Michigan, this is one of our favorites for softness.  a 3-ply light worsted, this yarn is spun in the worsted method, which makes for a smooth yarn and that gives great stitch definition when worked up.  Many of the colors are pretty heathers, and there are some great bold solids as well.

Contents:  100% domestic merino wool, and it's very soft!

Put up: twisted hank, wind before using. 250 yards/ 4 oz.

Gauge:  label says 17 sts/ 4" on size 8 (5.0mm) needles, we also love it knit at a denser gauge of 20-21 sts/ 4" on 6's.

Hand wash, dry flat.  Also felts great with soap, temperature change and agitation!
