Limited Edition: Autumn '23 Collection - Small batch yarn at it's finest! This Romney Lamb yarn is a gorgeous warm gray. We blended a few premium fleeces that were oh so soft, and destined to showcase Romney to it's fullest. Grown by sheep on Lopez Island, spun on Whidbey Island. Island Time...a slower pace, a connection to the land. 

The details:

Natural Gray 320 yds / 290 m per 3.5 oz / 100 g. 3-ply sport weight, natural warm gray (a bit more gray than beige, compared to the previous batch, with a bit more sheen)

Natural Brown 305 yds/ 280 m per 3.5 oz / 100g. 3-ply sport weight, deep chocolatey-brown with lighter flecks.

What we love about this yarn: It has an amazing soft hand (lamb fleece is truly a treat!) and a subtle halo. Good drape knit at a looser gauge, definitely next-to-skin-soft, so think hats, cozy sweaters, and best of all...shawls and cowls. Here's a Ravelry link to some pattern ideas. Romney is a longer-staple fiber, typically medium-fine with a bit of luster. 

This truly is small-batch yarn at it's finest: fleeces hand-selected by folks that know what to look for in quality fiber, processed in collaboration with our mill and Abundant Earth Fiber. From Lopez Island to Whidbey Island...we hope you love Island Time as much as we do. If this yarn is a hit, hopefully we can keep making more of it!

A collaboration between Island Fibers, Abundant Earth Fibers, and Skagit Woolen Works - making magic with local wool, one skein at a time.
