On the shores of Lake Champlain, our friends Annie and Sean raise sheep in a pasture-based system. They abide by the highest welfare standards, and the wool they shear shows it. Annie and Sean are excited to see their wool spun into beautiful and sustainable yarn that supports local business.
Romney Sheep originate in the Romney Marsh of England, where they developed a famous ability to weather wet conditions while growing long, lustrous wool. We love the long, lustrous locks with strong crimp from these wonderful sheep.
These lovely locks provide just the right softness and bounce for a crisp yet drapey yarn that you’re sure to enjoy. I assess the wool for cleanliness and sort out any excess VM by hand.
Scuttleship Farm Romney Fingering is a smooth semi-worsted with a small degree of halo. A great all-around yarn, it is neither drapey nor clingy but a perfect compromise of the two. The wool feels perfectly medium – it is not Merino-soft, but it is also not coarse or scratchy for most wearers. Samples are available.
