Merino/Rambouillet sheep are commonly found in the Western U.S. for their adaptability to semi-arid range conditions. They are large, rugged, gregarious animals known for their high-quality, dense, fine fleece.

Particular wool characteristics feature a bounce and elasticity without compromising softness. The matte surface beautifully exhibits natural dyes. And because it's non-superwash, there's a high fiber memory retention. The fibers rub against each other and attach ever so slightly in what is known as a fulling effect making it an excellent insulator.

Colors
Eggplant. Dye materials used: Logwood

Although the utmost care is taken to ensure the colors are consistent from batch to batch, no two are ever the same. We suggest purchasing enough yarn at once to complete your entire project—alternate skeins to avoid color pooling. 

Care Instructions
Hand wash in cold water with wool wash—dry flat.
