Description

Two strands of Mule Spun fiber, the Mule Spinner 2-Ply 100% Wool yarn is our premier light weight yarn. It is made from fine, Canadian grown, Rambouillet wool. It can be used in knitting machines, for hand knitting, or in weaving for warp or weft. The Naturally Dyed solid and heather colourways are created from fibre dyed in the wool with plant and bug extracts such as madder root, cochineal, indigo, logwood, and osage orange - a truly earth-friendly textile option, these colourways have a warm, "living", characteristic all their own. They can be paired beautifully with the Mule Spinner 2-Ply 100% Wool Sheep Shade colourway. The Sheep Shade colourway is created by blending natural sheep's wool colours. Lean more about the development of this yarn in our blog, Naturally Dyed Mule Spinner Yarns.

There are approximately 198m or 216 yd per 112 gms / 4oz skein. For knitting, we recommend 4mm to 5mm needles.

This is a Light to Medium weight yarn according to the Craft Yarn Council's Yarn Standard. You can find their simple guide to yarn weights here.

Please note: due to the small batch nature of our yarns, colour pooling can occur (though we work very hard to avoid it). When knitting large swatches of a single colour, we recommend introducing a new skein of yarn slowly by alternating skeins row for row.

100% Canadian Wool processed at Custom Woolen Mills, Alberta, Canada.

Sizing

Our sock sizes correspond to men's shoe sizes or are slightly smaller. If you like your socks loose, you may want to pick the next size up. Most men tend to fit into sizes 10-12 or 13-15. Most women tend to fit into sizes 4-6 or 7-9. If your foot size is right on the upper border of a size range, we would recommend getting the next size up. This makes them a bit more forgiving when it comes to washing.
