This is splendid American washable wool yarn from the Shaniko Wool Company.
Founder Jeanne Carver has spent a lifetime raising the standards and sustainability of US wool, becoming the first operation to supply fully traceable certified wool under the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS), developed by Textile Exchange. We all share her commitment in supporting American land, farmers, the US textile industry…and fiber artists everywhere.
I am way over the moon about the softness, versatility and beauty of this sport weight washable wool for baby designs. Wool is a legacy fiber and making it washable is a modern miracle! This washable wool process is the most environmentally friendly on the market.
This washable wool yarn is perfect for all your baby blankets, sweaters, hats, and more.
Any of the patterns that call for Appalachian Baby Design organic cotton yarn can be crocheted using this wool yarn instead.
