Blending fleeces from sheep raised on Ouessant (France's western-most island) and in Finistère, Brittany, and integrating some Merino d'Arles, also raised in France, Bouclelaine's Ouessant50 is a wonderful embodiment of what sustainable yarn companies rooted in their communities do these days. It's woollen-spun into a fingering weight which makes it perfect for light sweaters and layering pieces.
