This yarn is hand dyed in shades of blue. A sturdy, medium micron wool, this fiber is is hard wearing and not considered next-to-skin soft for most. It would be a great choice for knitted outerwear, rug weaving, or other use where a good rugged wool is required.

The Texel sheep originates from the island of Texel, the biggest and most populated of the Frisian Islands. Texels are recognizable by their distinctive, short, white faces, with a black nose and widely placed ears. Unlike many breeds, they have no wool on their heads or legs. They produce a good fleece with high loft and a staple of medium length which is highly crinkled. Fibers are classed as medium, 34 microns and less.

This listing is for one skein of DK weight yarn as shown.

This yarn will felt, so if that's not your intention, be sure to hand-wash your finished garment gently in cool water and lay flat to dry.
