This is a 2 ply, chunky weight 100% wool yarn 8WPI (wraps per inch).

Two different skeins of yarn are available:
Skein #1: 78 g - 134 m (2.75 oz - 147 yards)
Skein #2: 47 g - 72 m (1.66 oz - 79 yards)

The color is very difficult to grasp; it is olive green over gray heather, or khaki green gray, a very delicate gray-green, a truly medium shade between the warm and cold shades.

The original fiber is from a sheep of Babydoll breed sourced locally from a farm in the Mauricie region in the province of Quebec, Canada. This wool is very spongy, quite fine for its strength (around 25 microns) and therefore rather soft. Its natural color was gray heather. Prior to spinning, I hand dyed this fiber with heavy metal-free dyes by The Greener Shade.
