This is a beautiful natural charcoal grey 80% Finnsheep and 20% Mulberry Silk blend worsted weight yarn. It is a worsted weight 3 ply yarn, 155 yards. Each skein weighs around 3 ounces. Suitable for knit, crochet, weaving weft or fulled felted projects. I love the deep rick grey of this yarn. It is a blend of our variegated grey and black fleeces.
The finnsheep wool in this yarn was bred, born, raised and shorn entirely at Point of View Farm Finnsheep. These ewes are specifically selected for top quality fiber to produce the most luxurious of yarns. The mulberry silk adds luster and drape to the yarn. Mulberry silk is the more expensive silk and a higher grade silk than you might find in a commercially available yarn. Only the best…that is kind of a motto here at the farm. The Point of View Farm flock is pasture raised in the Hudson Valley region of New York and given the utmost in care and love. We know happy healthy sheep produce beautiful fiber. This wool was spun into yarn at a small US mill to our exact specifications.
The Point of View Finnsheep flock is raised as naturally as possible. That means we never dip our sheep in or pour pesticides on them. The pastures they graze are never treated with chemicals, only compost from our own farm. The mill uses mild soaps to clean the wool and not harsh processes. This keeps the wool soft, lofty and ‘healthy’ for your special project.
