This is a beautiful Fingering Weight spun yarn 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 2ply constructed yarn with a low twist to ensure the yarn is airy and workable. Gotland and BFL are known as a longwools and their characteristics inhibit strength, lustre and a halo. The Gotland wool yields minimal crimp which results in a yarn with a heavier drape.

It has a lovely drape and open stitch definition. Cabling is not suitable. Lace stitching is. Can be used in socks, shawls and sweaters

Milled at Rosebud River Fibre Mill in Alberta, in 2022 with both 2021 and 2022 clips from Crocus Country Shepherdess
