Collection: Finn DK/Worsted
100% untreated Finn wool; sourced from Frostad Farms (Sangudo, AB); woolen spun 2-Ply yarn; approximately 198m (216 yds) per 112g (4oz)
The yarn is spun at Custom Woolen Mills in Carstairs, AB. Finn fleece is soft and lofty, with an inherent sheen. It has a long staple length, which adds a bit of strength. You will find small bits of vegetation in the yarn, and may have a knot or two in your skein. This is how it comes from the mill, and is considered normal.
Listed yardage is a guideline for determining yarn weight, but because the yarn is woolen spun, you may find you can knit at a significantly smaller gauge than with a "worsted spun" yarn of the same weight, and that your finished fabric behaves differently than worsted spun yarns. Swatching will help you figure out what gauge you like best!
This base is seasonal, and is subject to availability.
Undyed yarn is also available.
