Mule Spinner 2-Ply 100% Wool Yarn - Sheep Shades and Standard Dyes

(4 customer reviews)


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


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 Sheep Shade colourway is created by blending natural sheep's wool colours. The Standard Dyed solid and heather colourways are created from fibre dyed with industry standard textile dyes.

Price is per 4oz skein.

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.

    I ordered this yarn in the #01 Natural White, #25 Slate Blue, #110 Forest Green Heather, #112 Yellow Heather and #16 Red with the intention of knitting up thick socks. When I received the yarn today it made me regret I didn't order more. The colours are so beautiful and vibrant. My toes are going to be toasty this winter.

    I love this wool. I made my grandson a pair of socks in orange with this wool, I knit it with one strand of baby wool/nylon and the socks are gorgeous. My son LOVES them, they are his favourite of all the socks I have knit for his little guy. I bought the Annie's Knee High Socks Kit and I am anxious to get to making myself a pair of socks with this lovely wool.

    I love real wool, but you always wonder if it will be scratchy for those sensitive folks on your handmade gift list - this wool is soft enough to be next to skin and takes dye beautifully. I would call it Aran, my favourite gauge for it is 4sts per inch. So happy to have such high quality right in our own Alberta backyard!

    I am in love with this yarn! I ordered the #2 Shade. It is so lovely to work with.

Our Prairie Wool Sock Guide

When choosing socks, the Original Wool Socks are the warmest, the White Wool Mohair Socks are the softest, and the Hard Workin' Wool/Nylon Socks are the most durable.


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.

Sock Care

To keep your Custom Woolen Mills socks in tip-top condition, machine wash them gently and hang to dry to prevent shrinkage.

Proper fitting shoes have a huge impact on how your socks will wear. If you find you get holes in your socks quickly, you may want to assess how your shoes fit. In the meantime, we have a handy tutorial on how to darn socks
