Storm Cloud Colorado-Grown Wool Sock/Sport Yarn, 3.5 oz
Our hand-dyed Colorado-Grown Corriedale & heritage Tunis wool sock/sport yarn is 2-ply mill-spun in 3.5 oz skeins. Made of a 50/50 blend of Colorado-grown Corriedale & Tunis wool (sourced from our local farmer-friends) with 25% nylon, our Red Mesa Heritage Blend yarn is durable yet surprisingly soft. Its softness isn't an alpaca or Merino kind of smooth soft, but instead a lofty, plush soft. The combination of Corriedale and heritage Tunis wool makes this yarn soft, bouncy, and elastic, with an amazing bloom (read more about the breeds and why they make a great sock yarn here). Grown in Colorado and spun in the USA, this is not your average yarn!
Our gradient 'Storm Cloud' evokes the intense summer monsoon storms that bring much-needed rainfall to the desert. We hand-dye each color in small lots and encourage variations of color intensity and shade. Very fun. Contact us for larger orders, as we will dye your order as a lot for color consistency. Available in a whole rainbow of hand-dyed colors.
