Mousam Falls is a machine washable 100% wool yarn.
We consider it a heavy worsted; it makes a lovely firm fabric knitted at 5 sts. per inch on a US 7, and can be used nicely with garment patterns requiring a gauge of 18 sts. per inch - likely on a US 8.
Each skein is 100 grams and 187 yards.
We knit the Edgecomb Owl Hat (available as an add-on kit) with one skein of Mousam Falls yarn. This yarn is particularly good for children's wear.
JaggerSpun has been producing spun yarns since the 1880's 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.
