This wool is great for winter wear and socks! It is a springy, easy to spin fiber. Being a down breed, it also doesn't felt!
This is the colorway based on the response we received from Elizabeth's daughter when we asked her about her Mom's favorite color:
"“My mother loved Loden green (the color of German Loden cloth; a deep green, but not too blue or too yellow) and rust - not too red and not too orange. Add those to any natural, undyed sheep colors, ranging from off-white, through greys, browns and blacksheep. Knit on… Meg”
I take great care to make sure that dye is sufficiently exhausted and heat set the fibers so there is minimal to no run-off. However, due to differences in water across the globe, what runs clear for me may bleed a little for you. Please take care to hand wash your finished item in cool water and lay flat to dry. I also make every attempt possible to use a photograph that is as true as possible to the real color. Monitor settings may vary.
