This aran weight 3-ply millspun yarn is from our flock of Border Leicester/Coopworth crossbred ewes. This is one of my favorite crosses - great mamas and easy keepers and very long-lived and sensible sheep. 

The fleeces are shorn prior to lambing, skirted and washed by me, sent to our regional mill to be processed into our custom order and then once returned dyed on the farm using professional quality dyes. 

Aran weight is a bit heavier than Worsted and utilizes needle sizes 8-9, depending on what you're wanting to create. This yarn will felt so hand washing with a good wool wash like Unicorn Fiber Wash and Rinse is recommended. A free sample will be included with each order. We sell these cleaning products on the farm. 

Each 4 oz skein has approximately 190 yards.
