Our natural Heritage Tunis 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!

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.)
