Brand new from Jill Draper! This fingering weight yarn is made from reclaimed Dorset wool leftover from the manufacture of Jill's Ellsworth & dyed black Rambouillet originally used in the heathered version of Empire & Mini Empire. The wool is slightly toothy & spun in a single ply construction with slight variances in thickness. It’s lightweight & will make a warm, light garment or can be knitted densely to make more water & weatherproof accessories. Each of these 5 colors has at least half a dozen shades of wool included so close inspection will surprise you with specks of color gently blended in.


Hand wash in cool water & lay flat to dry for the longest wearing garment.

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.)

Shipping calculated at checkout.

"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
