A Little History...
Polwarth sheep were developed in Australia in 1880. They are a cross between a Merino and a Lincoln. They produce beautiful fiber with a micron count similar to that of Merino (21-24 microns). Their wool is very soft and lustrous - a joy to knit!

As with all hand dyed yarn, expect subtle color variations between skeins. It is always best to alternate skeins on projects calling for more than one skein of yarn. Dyes are colorfast and should not run or fade.

Every effort has been made to represent yarn colors as accurately as possible. Please note, however, that every computer monitor varies slightly in the way that they display colors.

All orders are thoughtfully packaged (suitable for gift giving) in tissue paper and tied with lovely charcoal gray and white twine.

I am happy to wind your yarn into a center pull ball at no charge. Just leave me a note in the "Note to Seller" option at checkout.

The last photo shows Zeta in the Mushroom colorway knit up into a gorgeous shawl using just one skein of yarn. The pattern, designed by the talented Larissa Brown, is available for purchase here...
