Calypso In Color 50/50 Worsted Untamed Series
Here at Calypso In Color we are thrilled to introduce our signature worsted weight yarn. It is made of 50% Kid Mohair for softness, strength, and silky shine, and 50% Merino Wool for elasticity and superb hand. 100% American grown, shorn, spun, and dyed, we are proud to help our neighbors and countrywo/men keep working at the jobs they know and love. The animals that produce the fiber are raised on farms that care about good animal and environmental stewardship. The fiber is carded and spun in a facility in central Pennsylvania.
Then we send the yarn to our very own local Indie Dyer, Jonathan Berner, from MJ Fibers. He then transforms our color pallette into the magical beauty that you see here, with his unique dying technique.
Put up in full 4 oz skeins, you are getting about 15% more yarn per skein, compared to the industry standard of 3.5oz skeins.
