Babe is a 2-strand single ply DK weight yarn; the 2 strands are gently twisted together to create the illusion of a single ply but with greater strength.  For this batch of Babe, we collected all the lamb's wool from Leyden Glen, a beautiful family farm in the northern hills of the Western MA Fibershed.  Babe is a warm, squishy yarn from prancing Romney-cross lambs.
