This beautiful DK spun yarn is sourced from a single flock in Caroline, Alberta. 

The Shepherdess is a friend going a few years back. I have since hand processed and spun multiple fleeces from the same flock. I use the fibres for blending in batts which I often offer here at Crux. 

This is a 3ply constructed yarn with a low twist to ensure the yarn is airy and workable. Gotland and BFL are known as longwools and their characteristics inhibit strength, lustre and a halo. The Gotland wool yields less crimp which results in a yarn with drape and lower yardage than comparing to fine fibres such as Merino wool.

Milled at Rosebud River Fibre Mill in Alberta, in 2022
