Undyed Polwarth wool DK yarn - 100g

We currently have 12 in stock.
$ 16.00

Polwarth sheep were bred in the 1880s as a dual purpose breed that was hardier than Merinos, but retained the fine wool of Merinos.  They are a cross of 1/4 Lincoln (a longwool sheep) and 3/4 Merino, which results in a fine wool with a longer staple length, increased luster and durability.  Polwarth is well loved in the handspinning community, and it's a joy to bring a Polwarth specific yarn into our selection of hand dyed yarns.  

Each 100g (3.5 oz) skein of Polwarth DK contains 300 yards of a lovely 3 ply yarn.  Knits up at 6 stitches to the inch (it can substitute for many sportweight yarns) with a US 4-6 (3.0 - 4.0 mm).  

Care: Handwash cold.  Lay flat to dry.
