A minimally processed, rustic sport weight yarn made with Canadian wool, spun in New Brunswick at Canada's oldest woolen mill, Briggs and Little, with colors hand dyed with care by Megan Ingman and team, of Lichen and Lace Studio.
The fiber is a blend of Canadian wools including Suffolk, Dorset, Cheviot, Romney, and Rideau Arcott, and the beautiful hand dyes yield a soft glow that evoke the outdoors - sunsets, fields of grass and snow, a bouquet of wildflowers. This wonderful sport weight yarn has beautiful stitch definition and softens and blooms with washing and wearing. Use it for sturdy socks, mittens, and sweaters - paired with Marsh Mohair, it creates a glowing halo.
