Ivory Colorado-Grown Bulky Wool Yarn, 1.5 lb
Our natural ivory Colorado-Grown Corriedale & heritage Tunis wool Bulky yarn is 2-ply mill-spun in 1.5 lb cones. Made of a 50/50 blend of Colorado-grown Corriedale & Tunis wool (sourced from our local farmer-friends), our Red Mesa Heritage Blend yarn is durable yet surprisingly soft once washed*. The combination of Corriedale and heritage Tunis wool makes this yarn soft, bouncy, and elastic, with an amazing bloom (read more about why we call it Red Mesa Heritage Blend yarn here). Grown in Colorado and spun in the USA, this is not your average yarn!
*This yarn blooms when washed - make sure to make very loose ties when skeining, and wash before use or make sure to do a swatch (and wash the swatch) if using straight off the cone!
