They are sheared annually and their hairs separated into grades depending on thickness. The wool is strong, light, soft, hypoallergenic, breathable, and oil-free.

November 22, 2014 - I initially loved this yarn. It's soft, more so than what I've found in local hobby stores. However, it comes in two skeins. I found one skein was thinner than the other so the scarf I was working on started to narrow when I added on the second skein of yarn. I had to modify my gauge to keep it the same width but that gave the second part of the scarf a looser knit. Darn the first Skein was wonderful and I loved it.
January 7, 2014 - So soft. Bought for my sister for Christmas and she loved it! Good quality and hand washable.
April 6, 2013 - This is the second time I've purchased this yarn. It is deliciously soft and light, and very warm. I plan on buying it as long as this site keeps it available.
