    This single-flock yarn is 100% lambswool, spun from the wool from the lambs' first shearing, and hand-ddyed about 50 miles from where the sheep were raised.

    It's woollen-spun which means it's delightfully light and airy, yet warm and cozy. Marina dyes a stunning range of jewel tones and bright pops of color that are wonderful combined with their undyed creamy white and heathered grey siblings.

    "Sunny" colors are dyed on the creamy white based while "cloudy" colorways are dyed on grey.
