Timberline Sock Yarn, Colorado-Grown Wool, 3.5 oz

$ 26.00

Our hand-painted Timberline sock yarn is 2-ply mill-spun, 75% Colorado-Grown heritage Tunis** wool & 25% nylon, in 3.5 oz skeins. Grown in Colorado and USA-spun, this is not your average yarn!

Our 'Timberline' was inspired by the point where trees give way to alpine meadows, filled with wildflowers, in the high elevations of our San Juan Mountains. The trees that push this boundary are sculpted by wind and weather into fantastically contorted shapes and rich, varied shades of green. 

    • 3.5 oz (approx. 100g)
    • Very approximately 350 yards
    • Size 2 U.S. (3mm) needles
    • 6.5 stitches/inch, 14-16 WPI
    • 75% Colorado-grown wool, 25% nylon
    • Handwash in lukewarm water and lay flat to dry

**Tunis is one of the oldest indigenous breeds in the United States, is relatively rare as recorded by the Livestock Conservancy, and was preferred by Thomas Jefferson over Merinos. Containing Leicester Longwool and Southdown genetics, this background gives Tunis fiber its soft and bouncy hand, qualities which it has lent to this sock yarn. (Much of the breed information is from Clara Parkes's The Knitter's Book of Wool.)

We attempt to represent our colors as accurately as possible, but your monitor/screen's settings may alter the display. Variations in color may occur, as each skein is painted by hand; we cannot guarantee perfectly matching colors between dye lots.

Gorgeous yarn

Gorgeous yarn. Very well packed. Shipped so quickly. Excellent seller.

Will purchase again with caveat…

I wish I had asked if I was purchasing the skein pictured. The skein I received is very dark charcoal and gray with barely a hint of pink anywhere in it. It is nothing like the skein pictured when I made the purchase. Very speedy shipping; it is fun to knit with yarn from a rare breed of sheep. I will purchase from Timberline in the future but I will ask questions prior to completing the transaction.

Great texture

Great color and texture! :]
