This yarn is in shades of purple, red and black. The wool was hand dyed here at Edgewood Garden Studio before being spun.

This listing is for one 2-ply skein, weighing 3.8 oz., spun at an average of 1350 ypp (yards per pound), a DK weight. These 320 yards wrap at approximately 12-15.

Corriedale is a sheep breed that was developed during the industrial revolution for the sweater trade. They needed a fiber that was a little longer than Merino for the machines, so they crossed Merino with the long-haired Lincoln to produce a new breed: Corriedale. Today, Corriedale can be quite varied, as Merino is crossed back into the breed to soften it.

See my About Wool and Yarn page for further knitting gauge suggestions for various yarn weights and care instructions for different fibers.

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.
