Wonderfully balanced, beautifully spun, fluffy and soft — all great qualities in yarn, all found right here! This skein / hank of yarn is handspun from heritage breed Romeldale wool. Specifically, it is the natural colored wool found in the California Variegated Mutant (or CVM) subset of the Romeldale breed. It is a beautiful natural gray color. The 4 ounce hank measures approximately 80 yards and is an Aran to Worsted weight at 8-10 WPI. The yarn is 2-ply and the perfect amount to sample this amazing breed of sheep’s wool! It is light, fluffy and next-to-skin soft!
This 4-ounce skein is the perfect amount to make a smaller project or add to a larger one! The natural gray wool takes dye very well — an overdye will give you lovely heathered hues. Knit it up with US size 7 to 9 needles or crochet with US size I through K hooks. Also makes great doll hair!
The Romeldale / CVM sheep has been identified by the Livestock Conservancy to be a “critically” endangered sheep breed, which means that the global population of this breed is fewer than 2,000 animals! The Romeldale produces next-to-skin soft wool — it is superfine and lovely to work with! These sheep are a rarity in that the color of their fleeces get darker as they age, rather than lighter. They are an exquisite anomaly and worth preserving as a part of American history.
The California Variegated Mutant (CVM) is a color variation of the Romeldale that is a light colored fleece with a darker underbody, and distinct “badger-faced” markings on the face. Purchase of this yarn will help to promote an endangered breed and help prevent it from going extinct. Choose to receive your yarn as a standard twisted hank (as shown) or as a center-pull ball for a small increase in price.
