MOUFLON - a wild sheep thought to be the ancestor of modern sheep breeds - this colorway is a hearty mix of rustic brown tones, mahogany, glazes of gold, orange, gray, blue and more.
•A heart-warming, twisted sport weight yarn with tweed flecks!
"TWISTED" TWEED SPORT YARN - a stunning, cozy blend of 2 types of wool spun into a cool barber pole effect. Flecked throughout are brown, gold and plum neps that don't take the dye, resulting in a soul-satisfying tweed look.
•2-plies twisted together (one ply is superwash, one is not), each taking the dye slightly differently = a unique twisted look.
•Bounce, softness and warmth - we chose beautiful, soft merino wool for this yarn which has a vibrant bounce, so your project will hold its shape.
•43% superwash merino wool, 42% fine merino wool, 15% donegal.
•This base has such an earthy, homey, charming feel. It can be dressed down and worn in the most casual of cozy settings or dressed up for elegant occasions. It's got a certain heirloom, heritage, yet hip, modern vibe to it.
•Sport Weight - makes for a great yarn for a variety of projects. Sweaters, shawls, scarves, hats, mittens, blankets and more.
•Hand-wash and air dry for best long-term results.

Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
As of today, I have only rewound one skein. And the yarn is so very soft and luxurious. The colors are rich and strong. I look forward to creating the beautiful pattern that I also found on your site. Thank you for that. I do plan to send you a pic of it upon completion. Once again your buisness privides a beautiful product and wonderful service.
At first I thought the skeins were too small to make the sweater that I wanted--the free pattern from your site--happily, I was wrong. I just finished winding this yarn by hand. It is truly exquiste. I love the softness and the shine. The colors are beautiful. Thank you for creating this beautiful, yummy yarn. I shall send a picture when it is done.
The colors are beautiful and the "tweed" really adds richness and depth. The purchsing and shipping process were flawless. I have just swatched with this yarn. It is just a bit thinner that my Madelinetosh Sport so I will be doubling the yarn with a fingering weight and hope to begin my new sweater in the not-to-distant future. I will be ordering more of this (probably and additional 2 or 3 skeins) once I get started.
Just received my two skeins. The yarn is lovely and has a nice hand. We raised Mouflons in the 90's, and these were beautiful animals. The yarn captures the look of these somewhat exotic sheep quite faithfully. I am still considering patterns... Thank you for a lovely colorway with hidden memories :)
