Wool Yarn

All of our 100% wool yarn and wool blend yarns are spun from 100% pure new wool and exotic fiber sourced direct from farmers in Western Canada and through the Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers. Canadian wool is noticeably different than other wool - our sheep live in extreme temperatures and so their wool is loftier (more fluffy and bulky) and often of better quality than other wools. Learn more about the Canadian Wool We Use and How it is Grown in our blog!

To protect the quality of the wool and our environment, we practice minimal processing without the use of harsh chemicals. We do not superwash wool so that all of its best natural characteristic are maintained. As such, Custom Woolen Mills wool yarns can also be used for wool felt techniques. Learn more about wool processing in our blog, Wool Textiles and the R’s of Sustainability Part 1: Rethink and Refuse.

Processed on our antique woolen carding and spinning system, Custom Woolen Mills yarns are excellet for hand-work such as knitting, crochet, weaving, dyeing, and rug hooking. They have lots of loft and bloom beautifully with their first wash. 

We are pleased to offer six types of yarn: Prairie Wool Bulky, Prairie Wool Lopi Soft Spun, Prairie Sea Fusion Soft SpunMule Spinner YarnCWM Sock Yarn, and our limited yearly run of the naturally dyed Field & Forage Yarn

The bulkier Prairie Wool and Prairies Sea Fusion yarns are made with Dorset type wool to provide strength. The Mule Spinner and Field & Forage yarns are made with Merino and Rambouillet type wool to provide next-to-the-skin softness. The CWM Sock Yarn is made with a combination of Merino or Rambouillet, Dorset, and Nylon to provide the perfect combination of softness, loft, and strength. 

We classify the weight of our yarns according to the Craft Yarn Council's Yarn Standards, www.YarnStandars.com. You can find their simple guide to yarn wieghts here
