Gwen Hinman of The Shearer's Yarn shears her sheep and crafts her yarn herself. Their sheep wool is selected based on what wool is the highest quality and transformed into soft, but strong wool yarn. Yarns from The Shearer’s Yarn come in 35 colors, including heathers, and make up beautifully into medium-weight designs. They are excellent for felting and can also be used in weaving.
Every yarn is two-ply, 100% wool. Each skein is 4 ounces (113 grams). To care for your creations, hand wash them with mild soap in lukewarm water and lay them flat to dry.
"It’s a natural fiber – nothing else but dye goes into its production, not petroleum or plastic nor any other synthetic ingredient. Wool is one of the warmest fibers you’ll find. And it’s truly a renewable resource."
