All natural Finnsheep yarn in 2 ply DK weight and is mill spun. This listing is for one, 200 yard skein of our Finnsheep Yarn. This yarn is a very pretty NATURAL COFFEE BROWN. It is so dark that it almost looks black. The yarn is the natural, undyed color of the fleece. Our yarn is very soft to the touch and has minimal vegetable matter.
Finnsheep wool averages 22-33 microns and most people are able to wear it next to their skin. It works well for sweaters, blankets, and felting. It does felt easily so it needs to be hand washed gently and laid flat too dry when washing the items you make with our fiber.
Our sheep happily live their lives in the pasture, rotating to new grass and forages, every 1-2 days. They are protected and loved by their livestock guardian dogs. The Finnsheep are very friendly and love chin scratches. They also seem to love to have their picture taken – it seems like there is always one wanting to show off how beautiful she is!
