SHABA GREEN Lime heather wool knitting yarn
Shaba is the Russian word for a giant green frog who lives below the surface of the spring ponds.

**WOOL FACT**
Wool has also been traditionally used to cover cloth diapers. Wool fiber exteriors are hydrophobic (repel water) and the interior of the wool fiber is hygroscopic (attracts water); this makes a wool garment able to cover a wet diaper while inhibiting wicking, so outer garments remain dry. Wool felted and treated with lanolin is water resistant, air permeable, and slightly antibacterial, so it resists the buildup of odor. Some modern cloth diapers use felted wool fabric for covers, and there are several modern commercial knitting patterns for wool diaper covers.

Here is my team for Peace Fleece yarn containing reviews and information about Peace Fleece Yarn: http://etsy.me/Oir9g8
This is a good, sturdy working yarn that is very warm, perfect for sweaters or vests. It will surprise you after you wash your project. This yarn relaxes and blooms the more it is washed & worn, quickly becoming your favorite!

Hand wash in cool water & lay to dry unless you want to felt your project. This wool yarn does felt if you want it to. :-)

**Peace Fleece does contain vegetable matter. They have chosen to not use the "carbonizing" process where the wool is dipped into sulphuric acid to remove bits of dried grass, thus their yarn is free from this chemical. The minimal amount vegetable matter that remains after the finished process is easily removed as you work, and reminds you that this yarn is an end product given to us by real sheep.
