These yarns are spun thicker and less even than our normal Nomadic Fibers yarn. Some skeins show a couple of "balls" in the yarn. It gives it a certain character which some might especially like. It is no problem to knit it 2 strands and the irregularity of the yarn becomes less visible.
This handspun yarn is the second step in making woolen fabric and a wonderful, loosely spun yarn for weaving, knitting or felting. Before it is spun it has been skirted - the removal of thorns and other dirt, then washed by hand and machine carded. It comes from the sheep of our team from Changthang. The sheep live at an altitude between 4000m and 5000m, therefore the wool promises excellent warmth for the colder days. The handspinning assures a 100% pure and natural sheep wool. It is spun by our team of settled nomads close to the city of Leh, Ladakh. The wool is excellent for natural dyeing.
