The Green Line is JaggerSpun's certified 100% organic wool yarn spun at their mill in Springvale, Maine, and organically dyed in their New England dyehouse. We stock many of their colors and will continue to increase the color selection.
This is a sport weight, 100% wool yarn which knits at approximately 6 sts. to the inch on a #4 needle. These 50-gram skeins contain 166 yards. The Loons on the Lake pattern was knit by the designer with this yarn. A free copy of the Belfast Bay Shawl is available with the purchase of four skeins of this yarn.
JaggerSpun has been producing spun yarns since the 1880s when Uriah Jagger arrived from England and established a worsted spinning operation in the Mousam Valley of southern Maine. Since then, they have produced the yarns for the wholesale commercial markets. Putting yarn up in skeins, to provide stock to retail yarn shops, is new to them.
Hand washing is recommended.
This yarn is soft, wonderful to knit, comes in lovely colors.
The yarn is soft and lovely, great colors too. The shop was so helpful picking out coordinating colors with me online!
I used this yarn for a linen stitch scarf; a pleasure to work with.
