Harvest Tunis 2017
Worsted/Aran Weight 2-ply
100% Tunis Wool from Tin Forest Farm near Millet, AB
Lofty, lightweight, and warm, Harvest is our cornerstone yarn, perfect for a large variety of projects including hats, mittens, sweaters, and slippers.
Like all our woolen spun yarns, Harvest is washed, carded, and spun at the Custom Woolen Mills in Carstairs, Alberta on industrial revolution era mill equipment.
Tunis sheep are descendants of the ancient Tunisian Barbary sheep originally from North Africa. The wool is a creamy tan or off-white colour, and produces a soft, versatile yarn that strikes the perfect balance between drape and stitch definition. Soft enough for next-to-skin garments, and well suited to lace, texture, or colour work, Tunis is great for a wide variety of projects.
