Corrie a light an lovely fingeringweight 3 ply yarn spun with 75% Superwashed Corriedale and 25% Nylon. We are on a mission to expand and diversify our wool yarns! Corriedale is a lovely wool.
Corriedale sheep are widely farmed in New Zealand, Australia, Southern Brazil, the United States, Patagonia and Uruguay. It is the most popular breed of sheep in Uruguay. Corriedale was developed by crossing Leicester and Lincoln rams with Merino ewes during the late 1800s ib both New Zealand and Australia.
A Corriedale fleece wool has a fiber diameter of 25 to 30 microns. On average, a mature ewe will produce around 4.5-7.7 kg wool with a staple length of 3.5 to 6 inches. Corriedale is not as fine a wool as Merino but it is fine enough! Our Corrie is soft and lofty and takes dye like a dream! I love the hand of this yarn and can see it in so many applications!
