Handspinners, and the fiber mill in Aroostook County, just love to spin Finnsheep fleece. We hope to get more hand knitters to experience it as well. This fiber is soft, yet durable, with and the fiber's crimp makes the spun yarn somewhat springy and lofty.
We wrote about Sweet Clover Farm in our March 2017 blog post. At the time of our visit, the Finnsheep had not been shorn, but now this year's fleece is yarn!
The specifics of Sweet Clover's super soft, undyed yarn, is as follows:
dk weight - a 2-ply, approx 200 yards and 75 grams per skein, $16.00; the "black" is a very dark brown.
worsted - 2-ply, approx. 200 yards and 110 grams per skein, $21.00;
We knit the Purl Swirl Cowl with the three skeins different skeins of dk weight. This pattern is available on Ravelry for $4.00.
