This is the kind of yarn that you make into sweaters that you will wear for the next twenty years. It isn't flashy, but it is genuine quality. All American Worsted combines 75% Rambouillet wool with 25% alpaca, for a yarn that is understated and classic, warm and soft. The yarn is entirely produced in the U.S., from the raising of the sheep and alpacas to the spinning and dyeing. The yarn is spun at a historic mill in New England, skeined, and then dyed in Maine. The colors are rich and intentionally not uniform. Expect modulation in the color, with areas of dark and light. This is not a flaw but one of the characteristics that makes this yarn unique!
This yarn comes in a reeled hank, which must be wound into a ball before use. We are happy to wind the yarn for you at no charge, but this does make the yarn non-returnable. If you would like your skeins wound, please request it in the "Shipping Instructions" box during the checkout process.
