Description

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.

Care

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.)

"I'm so excited to finally find my perfect local yarn store. They carry such an amazing range of yarns, from locally sourced to small batch sheep to skein to naturally dyed. I've been twice (so far!) and I'm always greeted so nicely. It doesn't feel clique-y or snobby as some shops do. Their range is really amazing and so far I've gotten sweater yarn and yarn for 2 different shawls here. Dawn is great with color advice too. Highly reccomend!" - Google Review
"I couldn't leave this shop a high enough score. 10000/10. The instant I walked in, I was given a warm greeting and was immediately helped. I went in for sock yarn but, was overwhelmed by all the amazing local yarn. I love that they have a direct relationship with their yarn artisans. She even stayed a few minutes past closing when I was having problems picking just one skein. Never felt rushed or like she wanted me gone. She took the time to make sure I was getting exactly the righ.t product and even put my skein into a cake That's an amazing service that I've never been offered before. I can't say enough good things about this place. Ill definitely be making the trip there more often!" - Google Review
