- Our beautiful singles rug yarn is custom spun to our specifications from lustrous virgin New Zealand Romney. Rugs woven of this yarn have an inherent beauty not matched by any other yarns. We hand-dye our yarns outdoors over wood burning fires, using high-quality acid dyes to ensure color fastness. We dye both natural white and grey wool to get an enormous variety of brilliant and subtle colors. Slight tone variations in the hand-dyed skeins will appear in the textile as depth of color, and enhance the hand-made look of the finished piece.
- This yarn comes in 2 naturals and over 80 hand-dyed colors. Click here for a Sample Card.
We use this yarn with our 4-ply Worsted Wool Warp at 4 ends per inch.
For a weft-faced weave, each skein weaves approx. 3 sq. feet.
The yardage for each spin lot varies a little. Yet, with weft-faced weave, it still weaves up the same approx. square footage (approx. 3 sq. ft. per skein).
If yardage is very important for your project (ex. you are knitting or you are using this as a warp), please contact us to get the exact yardage of our current spin lot.
