Our Aran-weight American Cheviot yarn really is the sheep’s knees. We can’t get enough of its bounce or the cushy loft of the garments we knit in it. American Cheviot grow a sturdy, hardwearing fleece with a distinctive helical crimp, and it’s this crimp which adds extra bounce to the already airy structure of our carefully designed woolen-spun yarn. We make this yarn in the US, in partnership with New-Hampshire-based Harrisville Mill.
The yarn’s color pallet features painterly blends of blacks, blues, reds, and yellows to create rich, multi-toned heathers.
