Handspun yarn is the ultimate treat. Not only do you get quality product to use for yourself and loved ones, but you are also supporting hard-working farmers around the world. Jacob sheep are a hardy, primitive breed with highly variable wool which is what makes it so much fun to work with. It retains its bounce when spun, can felt beautifully, and will last for a very long time. This skein is 3 plies of Jacob sheep wool and 1 ply of metallic purple filament, with a total of approximately 88 yards of light worsted weight. While not a fine wool for sensitive skin, it would do well for fingerless gloves, a headband, ear warmers, or similar project.
