Coopworth Yarn (heavy worsted/aran)
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 fber 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 blue is indigo dyed. It is hand dyed by Sheepscot Harbor Yarns in Edgecomb. (It is strikingly beautiful.)
Each skein is approximately 192 yards/4 ounces. It will knit as a worsted or aran weight, depending on your project.
