There are approximately 74 yd or 68 m per 112 gms / 4 oz skein. For knitting, we recommend 6mm needles. Each skein has been spun in Alberta at Custom woolen mills, a unique small batch processor that helps us ensure that the wool that is shorn from our beautiful sheep is the same wool that we get back after spinning! Each Skein is then custom hand dyed here on the farm giving every knot a unique and distinct colour, making for some amazing patterns! It has been really exciting working with these colors and watching the patterns take shape as the knitting progresses! The perfect start for a completely unique gift or project this winter! Please share your projects with us because we would LOVE to see them!
