Wool in the Woods is a micro farm in Jackson, Maine. It is a small flock of Romney sheep and angora goats. Romney sheep tend to be calm and friendly. Their wool is versatile and durable.
The light and medium grey skeins are blended with approximately 25% mohair - the fleece of the angora goats. All skeins weigh approximately 100 grams (3.5 oz.) and have 250 yards.
We gauged the Romney/mohair blended skeins (light and medium grey) at 5 to 5.5 sts. to the inch on a US 5 (3.75mm) needle. The 100% Romney skeins can be knit between 5.5 to 6 sts. per inch on a US 4-5 (3.5-3.75mm) needle.
We had Sheepscot Harbor Yarns dye some white skeins with indigo creating endless possibilities with just a little bit of color!
