Peace Fleece has long been one of our favorite yarns. A blend of Native/Non-Native American fine wool and Texas mohair, Peace Fleece is hard-wearing yet soft, the perfect sweater yarn for long Maine winters. Plus, it hardly ever pills! The same blend is available in DK weight, with a limited palette. It is spun by Harrisville Designs in New Hampshire.
GAUGE: 4 stitches per inch on US #8 (5 mm)
113 gram skein (4 oz.)/ approx 200 yds per skein
Care: Peace Fleece yarns will dramatically soften and fluff up with washing and use. We actually throw finished sweaters into a cold gentle wash cycle with very good results
Has a lot of VM, but that is part of the charm, to show that it is very close to the animal. Love the fact that they blend American wool with Indigenous wool sources too, and the history of the brand with advocating for peace through wool. Made a hat for me friend and told her all about the brand. She was thrilled!
The yarn is beautiful and highly recommend. Everyone is so helpful What a wonderful local yarn shop!
