Unsalted is the 3rd in our line of Michigan/Great Lakes Yarns. It is a 50/50 blend of Coopworth and Alpaca in a worsted weight processed just for us at Hoof-to-Hanger in Bridgman, MI.
The Coopworth fiber comes from Hidden Valley Farm in Wisconsin, and the Alpaca comes by way of The Alpaca Barbers from farmers across Michigan. Coopworth is a breed that has a long staple length, a great crimp and a beautiful luster. We find it surprisingly soft for a yarn that is not designed to be worn against bare skin, and incredibly satisfying to work with.
unSalted is a very unique yarn with an incredible amount of springiness and a beautiful halo making it a delight to knit with. These skeins are also extra large with 250 yards and weighing over 6 oz!
