Natural Brown Finnsheep Wool Yarn

This is a beautiful naturally brown Finnsheep yarn imported from the USA from the rare Point of View Farm brown Finnsheep. It is a worsted weight 2 ply, 150 yards. It should knit well on US 7-9 needles at about 16-20 stitches per 4″. WPI=9

 

The Finnsheep wool in this yarn was sourced from the Point of View Farm Finnsheep ewes who are specifically selected for top quality fibre to produce the most luxurious of yarns. The flock is pasture raised in the Hudson Valley region of New York and given the upmost in care and love. Happy healthy sheep produce beautiful fibre. This wool was spun into yarn at a small US mill.

 

The Point of View Finnsheep flock is raised as naturally as possible. That means following a policy of never dipping the sheep in or using pour on pesticides. The pastures they graze are never treated with chemicals other than compost from the farm. The mill uses mild soaps to clean the wool and not harsh detergents. This keeps the wool soft, lofty and 'healthy' for your special project.
