Handspun BFL wool yarn, DK weight, 265 yards - Jousting Pennants

$26.50 USD

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

This listing is for one 2-ply skein, weighing 3.6 oz., spun at an average of 1180 ypp (yards per pound), a DK weight. These 265 yards wrap at approximately 12-14.

BFL is a “multipurpose” sheep breed dating back from the early 1900’s. The ewes produce “litters” of three or four lambs with long loins. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination. Fortunately, they also have a beautifully soft, long wool that is especially easy to spin, so they are raised to maturity for their lustrous fleeces.

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.
