About this Yarn
This wool is from the New Zealand Polwarth sheep which is an old sheep breed combining 75% merino and 25% Lincoln. The fiber is similar to merino but with more sheen, so sleek, springy, and lustrous.
It is worsted spun from long-staple fibers to produce a yarn that is silky and smooth.
Good stitch definition. Ideal for socks, gloves, sweaters, and items that require some strength.
