This yarn comes to us from Aroostook Fiberworks in Aroostook County.

Coopworth fleece has three qualities that many spinners, knitters and crocheters love: a long fiber length (which tends to produce a knitted fabric less prone to pilling), a defined crimp (the more crimped or wavy fibers, the more elastic the yarn) and a noticeable luster. 

The white is a warm, almost buttery, white.

The dk skeins are 3.2 - 3.4 ounces and approximately 210 yards. The larger weight skeins may be a few yards more.

The 100% dark brown skeins are 3.6-3.8 ounces.  They are approximately 200 yards and have a silvery heather quality to it.  These skeins have a tighter spin - but definitely not overspun.  This should make for a hard wearing springy sweater that is also soft.

The dark brown skeins of 50% Coopworth and 50% alpaca, are super soft!  These 3 oz skeins are approximately 200 yards.  The smaller weight skeins may be a few yards less.
