This newest base in American Ewe Yarn has a fun color twist. It's created by one of the plies that has a bit of superwash wool mixed in with it which takes the dye more quickly and gets saturated with color. Hence the name Twisted Sport. This is a limited run of yarn and won't be repeated.
* Merino and Rambouillet wool from Shaniko Wool Co.
* 3 ply
* 312 yards
* 100 grams
All the yarn in the American Ewe Yarn comes from the Shaniko Wool Co. where the 9 ranches involved follow Responsible Wool Standards (RWS). The RWS is a third-party audited voluntary standard that farms and ranches follow to ensure the welfare of the sheep which are treated humanely, the land they graze is managed appropriately for improved soil health, and workers involved throughout are treated fairly. Each ranch is audited annually to ensure compliance with the standards. The scouring facility that cleans the wool and the mill that spins the wool into yarn are currently in the process of also obtaining an RWS audit which ensures the traceability of this yarn from ranch to skein. The skeins are hand dyed by Kelly Shultes in her dyeing studio in Schoharie, NY.
Care: handwash, lay flat to dry.,
