Door County Corriedale Yarn for Sale
Naturally Colored Yarn for Sale
The wool that we sell for hand spinning is the fiber protected under the jackets that our Corriedale sheep wear all year. In addition to that wool, each sheep has wool that cannot be covered by the jackets, but which is still quite suitable for spinning. We save this wool and have it professionally washed, carded and spun for us. We call this “mill-spun” yarn.
Our yarn is spun for us at Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mill in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin. All of the yarn is sport weight and comes in skeins of approximately 4 ounces each. There are about 350 yards in a 4 ounce skein. For our undyed, “mill-spun” yarn, we weigh each skein and price it individually. The cost is $4.00/ounce for our natural colors and white, which is about $16.00/skein.
We usually have our Corriedale “mill-spun” yarn available in three natural colors and white. The white and three natural colors currently available are shown below. (Keep in mind that the colors shown on your monitor will not exactly match the yarn colors in real life.)
- Dark Gray
- Medium Gray
- Light Gray
Please note that each batch of “mill-spun” yarn can be slightly different from the next in terms of shade. We provide an identifying number for each batch sold if you need to purchase additional amounts of the exact same yarn.
