Cestari Wool Traditional Collection Yarn - Worsted Weight
I am absolutely in love with this yarn. I visited the Cestari wool mill in Virginia several years ago and go talk wool and mill life with the owner. Ewethful has carried Cestari's cotton yarn for several years and I am so excited to add this lovely wool yarn to the mill shop. Now a little about the yarn...
The Chester family of Virginia, USA began breeding and development of the Targhee/Columbia Sheep in the late 1990's to produce a high-end, luxury fiber and after nearly ten years in development the traditional wool line was born. This fiber creates a yarn that blends together loft and softness.
Material: 100% Targhee/Columbia Wool Weight: 2 Ply Worsted Weight Physical Weight: 3.5 oz / 100 g Approximate Yardage: 170 yd / 155.4 m Gauge: 4 st/in on Size 8 Needles Care: Machine Wash Cold Gentle Cycle or Hand Wash Cold.

The spinning process and the breed of sheep this wool comes from makes it durable and machine washable without a chemical process. It becomes softer with each washing. Does not felt easily.
