Handspun yarn - Gray Masham wool, worsted weight, 475 yards - Natural Gray
This is a naturally colored yarn spun from Masham wool. This is a sturdy yarn, good for your projects that demand durability, but may not be soft enough for next-to-the-skin use for some people.
This listing is for one two-ply skein, weighing 7.9 ounces., spun at an average of 960 ypp (yards per pound), a worsted weight. These 475 yards wrap at about 8-12.
Masham sheep hail from the northern hills of England. They were derived from Teeswater rams crossed with Swaledale or Dalesbred ewes. They are a hardy and prolific breed with very long staple wool.
My skeins are wound on a full 2-yard niddy-noddy. If you don’t have a large swift, let me know. Spun in a smoke-free, pet-friendly home.
