This is San Luis Valley 3-Ply: the newest line of worsted weight yarns from Chelle Colorado. 100% Merino wool; custom-spun with a tighter twist for more durability; grown and dyed right here in Colorado. Named for the area where the Merino sheep for this yarn are raised (and where a branch of Michelle’s family has its roots), this yarn is cleansed with gentle detergents and dyed with vinegar-fixed professional dyes. This wool has not been exposed to the chemicals that dissolve vegetable matter. All these processes make a springy, next-to-skin soft 3-ply yarn, dyed in tonals and analogous colors to make your lace and cable patterns stand out, with a low carbon footprint for a textile.
3.5 oz/100g, 150 yds/137 m. Knitting: size 7 – 9 needle, 16 – 20 sts/4in.
