Handspun BFL wool yarn, Worsted weight, 260 yards - Boy Scout Camp
This yarn is in shades of green, purple and salmon. It was hand dyed in the wool here at Edgewood Garden Studio.
This listing is for one 2-ply skein, weighing 4.1 oz., spun at an average of 1015 ypp (yards per pound), a worsted weight. These 260 yards wrap at approximately 9-11.
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.
See my Store Policy FAQs section for further knitting gauge suggestions for various yard 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.
