Ewethful's Shetland/Pygora yarn - Fingering weight

Regular price $29.00 Sale

This yarn comes straight from Ewethful's animals to the Mill and now to you! This is a Shetland wool blended with our Pygora goat, Cuddlebug's, fiber. I may be partial but this yarn is pretty stunning!

What makes this different? Pygora is a luxury fiber that adds shine, softness and drape to the finished product. This yarn would be wonderful for just about any project but the drape alone would make for a pretty amazing shawl.

Why is this yarn more expensive? Pygora is not only considered a luxury fiber that originated here in Oregon, but it has an extra step to processing. Pygora fiber has guard hairs - coarser hairs that grow in their fleeces. Most pygora fleeces must be dehaired (the process of removing those guard hairs) prior to further processing to get the most luxurious fibers. An extra time consuming step in the process.

This first batch of yarn is a 2-ply fingering weight Shetland/pygora (80/20) yarn from Ewethful's very own Bert, Ernie and Jory. The boys have both white fleeces with flecks of gray making for a stunning heathered yarn. Cuddlebug the goat adds a bit of extra gray and an lovely sheen. Our sheep have been bred to be on the finer side of Shetland making for a wonderful squishy and soft yarn.  

Available in very limited quantities. 

Fingering weight. 250 yards. Natural heathered gray.

Small farms + a mini mill = a lot of yarn love.
