ABOUT OUR YARNS - The RUSTIC Range Our Rustic range is sourced entirely from within USA. Our lofty yarn has a soft hand that retains nice stitch definition. By sourcing directy from a mill we are able to k eep our costs down and our environmental footprint small . Our current Rustic range includes a 100% US Domestic wool blend in super bulky, worsted and sport weights, a 100% US Merino in a single-ply fingering and lace and a 75% superwash wool / 25% nylon blend in a sock weight weight yarn.  Our sport weight 100% wool is truly our workhorse yarn and is our most popular offering. RUSTIC Super Buky, Worsted and Sport A 100% wool yarn blend of Rambouillet, Corriedale and Columbia wool from sheep raised in Colorado. The fibers are worsted spun into a single-ply yarn that is surprisingly strong, yet still lofty. The fibers have a micron count of 22-24 making it soft to the touch, and yet it retains its artisanal nature, emphasized by our hand dyeing technique.  Our sport and worsted wools are great for felting - we suggest hand washing only for non-felted items. All colorways are available in our RUSTIC sport and worsted weight yarns. Super Bulky is only available in our Ombré range. Ball Size: FLUX (Self Striping) & Semi-Solid: 50g/1.76 oz balls Worsted (77 meters/85 yards) Sport (133 meters/145 yards) OMBRÉ (Long Gradient): Super Bulky 150g/5.28 oz(79 meters/87 yards) 75g/2.64 oz balls Worsted (115 meters/127 yards) Sport (199 meters/217 yards) RUSTIC MERINO FINGERING SHAWL BALLS With so many reasons to love our new Merino Fingering yarn, it's hard to know where to start. First-off, the fiber: this is our first single-ply fingering yarn, and our first yarn in a luscious, lovely 100% merino. With a micron count of 21.5, it has an against-the-skin softness for neckwear and perfectly complements our single-ply worsted and sport offerings. Then there's the feel-good manufacturing: this is a true cruelty-free merino, grown and spun in the United States to our particular specifications. Though exceptional stitch-definition has long been a hallmark of our single-ply yarns, the loftiness of this Merino Fingering is particularly versatile, lending itself to be stitched up in a variety of gauges without losing definition or drape. Voracious Freia fans will be perhaps most excited by the upgraded yardage. These 100 gram "Shawl Balls" measure 430 yards, perfect for single-skein projects. And, for the first time since debuting our very first "Flux" yarns, we're mixing up the formula: previously available only in 50g balls, we're now doubling the yardage for our Flux self-striping colors in the Merino Fingering. As with all untreated Merino yarns, handwashing is required to avoid felting. For the die-hard fan or the new-to-us knitter, our 100g Merino Fingering yarn will prove that when it comes to what you need to knit, "the Shawl Ball is all." Ball Size:   FLUX (Self Striping), OMBRÉ (Long Gradient)  & Semi-Solid  100g/3.53 oz balls (430 meters / 393 yards) RUSTIC MERINO LACE (NEW!!) After months of testing blends, plies and dyes, we're thrilled to announce that we've overhauled our lace yarn. Now 100% cruelty free merino, this USA spun yarn is even finer in quality and includes an additional 50+ yards in every ball at no extra cost to the customer. This 2-ply yarn plumps up beautifully after blocking, featuring superior stitch definition and a sumptuous drape. Each 75 gram ball measures 650 meters (712 yards), perfect for lacy shawls and scarves. Ball Size: FLUX (Self Striping) & Semi-Solid  50g/1.76 oz balls Lace (434 meters/475 yards) OMBRÉ (Long Gradient): 75g/2.64 oz balls - Lace (651 meters/712 yards)
