Feederbrook Yarn "Entropy" is the creation of Lisa Westra of Feederbrook Farm located in Northern Baltimore County in Maryland. Lisa started out handspinning yarn but could not keep up with the demand and Feederbrook's Entropy was created at a local mill. This Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) wool yarn line is designed to mimic the look of a hand spun yarn. Each ply is separately dyed prior to spinning together. The 2 ply barber pole has subtle color shifts that make it a unique gradient perfect for any knit, crochet or even woven project. Skeins are similar but not completely identical.

This is a wonderful yarn! It is soft and drapes nicely. I used a slightly larger size needle. The colors slowly change throughout the skein. The finished garment blocked beautifully and the yarn blooms. The is very little color loss in the washing. I used this yarn for a Night Shift shawl. Three skeins of three different colors. I picked two colorways that shared at least one color, and a third that was mostly shades of the same color. The third skein was used for the background "lice" throughout the shawl, and the other two joined at a place where they were the most similar. This gave me a beautiful color combo without all the end to weave in.
