Handspun by Mulberry Marsh (worsted)
Mulberry Marsh is a fiber farm nestled in the rolling hills of Jackson, Maine, where sheep and alpaca of many colors are pastured on an eco-friendly farm. Mulberry Marsh Designs specializes in naturally colored dye-free knitwear and yarn. All the fiber for their handspun yarns comes from Maine.
The chocolate brown is 100% Finnsheep wool. Finnsheep are a centuries old breed originating in Finland. The wool lends itself to being both soft and springy.
The dark grey, 75% Romney is mixed with 25% Mulberry Marsh-raised natural black alpaca. It has a warm brown undertone.
The light grey is 100% Mulberry Marsh-raised Shetland and the white is Border Leicester. Both are very soft.
All colors are gauged as heavy worsted/aran weight, knitting at 4 - 4 1/2 stitches per inch on a US 8 (5mm). The skeins are approximately 2 ounces/100 yards. One skein will make a pair of fingerless mitts and a free pattern is included or can be downloaded on Ravelry.
