Shepherd's Wool Yarn is made from a wonderfully soft Merino top. Merino is the softest of sheep's wool. This three ply worsted weight yarn is spun to 1000 yards per pound, which in 4-ounce skeins is 250 yards per skein. This yarn is worsted spun, meaning it's very very smooth and almost shiny in appearance. It will give great stitch definition for intricate patterns such as lace, cables, and knit/purl patterns.
It has a soft, cushy feel and also felts very well, so you can be confident your knit and felted projects will be great.
