Nature Spun Sport is a 100% wool yarn with a huge color line, including undyed naturals and dyed colors, so it is a great choice for Fair Isle sweaters. It is soft and warm but strong enough to work as warp for a weaving project. Most colors felt well, but #0740 Snow will not felt. Natural #0730 will felt, but it takes more effort than the other colors so it is best not to mix it with colors in a single piece to be wet felted. It has been permanently mothproofed.
Brown Sheep Yarn Company, located in Mitchell, Nebraska, started over 100 years ago as a sheep farm. In the 1980's, they began to produce their own yarn and continue to do so using environmentally-friendly state-of-the-art equipment.
