Description

We are pleased to offer the yarn Prairie Sea Fusion. Developed in co-operation with Salish Fusion Knitwear, a West Coast company dedicated to preserving the exceptional quality and long tradition of authentic Coast Salish knitting in the modern world. It is a heavy Soft Spun yarn made with 100% pure new Canadian wool to match the characteristics of traditional hand-spun Coast Salish yarn. Learn more about it in our blog.

In cones, the Prairie Sea Fusion is available in our five natural sheep shade colours. The Natural Sheep Shades can be paired with Naturally Dyed Prairie Sea Fusion if you want to introduce a hint of colour to your work.

Price is per 1lb cone.

There are approximately 300 yd or 274 m per 453 gms / 1 lb cone. For knitting, we recommend 6mm needles.

This is a Bulky 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 cone of yarn slowly by alternating cones row for row.

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

  1. Juanita

    I love this yarn, I have made mitts with it and they are so warm. It is a very chunky yarn so mitts crochet up really quickly.

  2. Michelle

    I love knitting with this yarn. I have made some really lovely sweaters. I just wish there were more colours available on the cones. Not scratchy at all, really easy to work with!

  3. Karen

    This yarn feels so nice to knit with. I keep looking for more patterns and more people to knit sweaters for. It’s much easier than roving.

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.

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.

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
