Animas Gold Colorado-Grown Wool Sock/Sport Yarn, 3.5 oz

$ 26.00

Our hand-dyed Colorado-Grown Corriedale & heritage Tunis wool sock/sport yarn is 2-ply mill-spun in 3.5 oz skeins - for a limited time offered as center-pull cakes!  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 semi-solid 'Animas Gold' evokes the stunning gold of cottonwood trees along the Animas River in the fall.  We kettle-dye each color in small lots and encourage variations of color intensity and shade, so this is not a completely solid color. 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.
