This listing is for three center-pull balls of beautiful self-striping yarn in a 70% wool/30% soy blend. Each ball is about 48 grams (1.7 ounces) and 125 - 130 yards, for a total of 145 grams (5.1 oz) and 375+ yards. You will receive one ball of each of these 3 different color combinations. I recommend US 6 needles (4 mm) for this DK weight yarn. Dry clean or hand wash separately in cold water & lay flat to dry. Agitate gently, as this yarn will felt - or agitate vigorously if you wish to felt!

Limited additional quantities are available, convo me or see my other listings. Click here to see all my wool yarns, http://www.etsy.com/shop/NorthcottWilson?section_id=12469352

In the interest of full disclosure, unlike my recycled yarns, this wool/soy yarn is not a fair trade item. In the past I limited myself to fair trade organizations, but that prevented me from obtaining certain types of eco-friendly yarns whose processing requires machinery typically owned by large factories. I selected this particular Chinese factory because of their progressive attitude towards women. Most Chinese factories that I worked with in my prior career as a fashion designer were staffed largely by young Asian women who had no opportunity for career advancement; all management positions were held by men. The factory that produced this yarn has female executives and supports education for women.

Please note, the shipping rates quoted below are for USPS First Class. For a small additional fee, I can ship via Priority Mail (within the US, Priority Mail for this item would cost $5.10). International buyers: convo me for a shipping quote if your country is not listed below, if you prefer Priority Mail, or if you want to buy multiple items.
