This yarn is scrumptious. It has an amazing hand and it is a trully local yarn from fiber to processing. The blend is German long hair Angora with merino. It had a soft handspun quality to it with little bits of thick and thin. The bloom is lovely but it really doesn't shed like a short staple angora fiber. It's from Handall House Farm in Dayville, Ct. and processed in Eastford, Ct. at the Still River Mill. Carolee is going to add more colors to her line. I'm sure if we ask her she might do some custom colors. It's really yummy yarn! The pattern pictured is called Maluka and can be found on Ravelry.
