We adore this yarn! What's not to love? This wool is completely made in the United States using gorgeous Romney fiber from Oregon and California sheep and then dyed in California.
Romney sheep are descendants of English medieval "longwool" breeds. While not soft like Merino or Rambouillet, this is a hardworking wool with a gorgeous lustre.
It is perfect for items that will be used frequently and need to wear well such as sturdy mittens, outerwear, and items for the home such as pillows or blankets.
Whatever you make with Heirloom Romney will look fantastic when you remove the project from your needles and for years to come. This is a special yarn that will truly create those heirloom pieces that will be passed from generation to generation!
