Yearling is a 3-strand single ply worsted weight yarn; the 3 strands are gently twisted together to create the illusion of a single ply but with greater strength. Made from 85% wool and 15% alpaca, this is a soft and warm yarn with a bit of drape and a slight halo.
In designing this yarn we worked with the mill and requested that the multi-colored fleeces be only lightly carded in order to retain the individual colors rather than completely blending into a single neutral tone. Every stitch on your needle will reveal a different combination of the various shades of the Shetland flock: white, grey, musket, and moorit.
We offer a spectrum of skein-dyed colorways using plants and insects which have been part of traditional dye applications for centuries. Overdying the varying Shetland shades results in brighter color on the highlights and a deeper shade on the darker details lending much interest to the color of this yarn.
