Polwarth is a crisp, wooly yarn. This base feels and works up very much like a non-superwash wool. The Polwarth sheep is a 75/25 cross of Merino and Lincoln. Polwarth wool has more luster than merino and a crisper hand. This yarn is a light DK weight constructed of 4 plies.

* All Orange Flower Yarn is made from ethically sourced fibers from farms that do not employ mulesing.
* There will likely be variations in appearance from skein to skein, even within the same batch. I recommend alternating skeins every couple of rows to blend the variations in hand-dyed yarn.
* Photographs show a random sampling from each batch of yarn. New photos are taken for every update.
* If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
