Homestead is a 3ply, worsted-weight yarn, woolen spun at a small family run mill in Germany. The fiber for this base is all sourced from one larger flock, in the surrounding Marburger Hinterland region.
Homestead was sourced, spun and packaged (excluding washing) within a 40 mile radius, before making it’s way to us here at La Mercerie. Ruth and her team work to reduce their environmental impact as much as possible and we are so grateful for them!
This is rustic farm yarn- it's woolly and sheepy and comes in two undyed, natural colorways. To ensure your project doesn't felt, we recommend washing by hand, as this is a non-superwash yarn.
