Handspun by Mulberry Marsh (worsted)


$ 18.00

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.
