$ 65.00

We currently have 15 of this selection in stock.

Our natural ivory Colorado-Grown Corriedale & heritage Tunis wool sock/sport yarn is 2-ply mill-spun in 1 lb cones.  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 once washed*.  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!

*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!
