JaggerSpun Super Lamb 4/8 (worsted)
JaggerSpun's Super Lamb 4/8 is a worsted weight 100% superwash merino wool that knits beautifully at 5 stitches per inch. It knits up with loft and our experience is that it continues to maintain that quality after it is washed. Superwash is great for children's wear, but this yarn is not for children's projects only!
A 50 gram skeins contains 124 yards.
We used the jade colorway to make our Freeport Baby Vest. If you are in the market to knit a baby item we think you will love the ease of knitting this pattern. You can read more about this pattern on Ravelry. We also have it on our website where you can buy both yarn and pattern for a one place shopping experience or for gift giving purposes.
Of course, Melanie West's fabulous polymer clay buttons really add the finishing touch to this vest.
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 very new to them.
