San Luis Valley Worsted Weight Yarns

Grown, milled, and dyed entirely within the state of Colorado

Colorado made

The San Luis Valley line of worsted weight yarns is Chelle Colorado’s first custom-spun yarn: grown, milled, and dyed entirely within the state of 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, soft 2-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. 3.2 oz/92g, 170 yds/155m. Knitting: size 7 – 9 needle, 16 – 20 sts/4in.
