A gorgeous blend of two 100% Domestic Western Wools--Fine Merino and Long Wool. High Country Wool recommends Homestead especially for soft socks, outerwear, sweaters, and hats.
From High Country Wool:
For nearly all of us, the concept of homesteading is a page out of a history book. Often painted with a romantic brush, the call to simplicity and intentional living is soothing to our 21st century souls. The Homesteads found in the Colorado landscape are a reminder - a call. To sustainable living, dedication to dreams, and optimism.
Blue-Faced Leicester, Border Cheviot, Wensleydale, and Gotland are curated from small flocks and shepherds dedicated to these practices. Blended with a generous amount of Merino, the result is a soft, lofty skein, full of life and calling to be transformed by your needles.
Hand wash with a gentle wool wash like Eucalan, dry flat.
FREE Yarn Winding
Many of our yarns are sold in hanks rather than balls and need to be wound into a "cake" before using. If you'd like us to do this for you, please add the Ball Winding Service to your order of yarn! (Please note: wound yarn can not be returned.)
