Very pretty color that I cannot describe any other way than a light coral. Corriedale sheep wool from Canadian producers. Spun from roving into a 2-ply yarn and then kettle dyed by injecting colors salmon, oranges, and reds in random sections of the yarn for a light and dark patch effect.
3.9oz (110g); approx. 144yards; approx. 7wpi (bulky).
Corriedale is essentially a merino hybrid sheep. This multi-purpose fiber was a pleasure to spin – reminded me of a fluffier merino fiber (less dense). Characterized as medium soft with long staples. Since it has an even crimp the yarn has a lot of loft and elasticity.
