Maruska

$30.00

This yarn is half Polwarth Wool and half Eureka Mystery Blend.  This mystery blend comes from our friend Gail White at Ozark Carding Mill.  Gail processes quite a bit of alpaca and bamboo along with all manner of other natural fibers.  Periodically the carding equipment must be torn apart and completely cleaned.  The fiber they pull off the carding machine is a blend of everything that has been carded on the machine since it was cleaned last.  We know all the fiber is clean and we know it probably contains quite a bit of alpaca and bamboo but the exact fiber content?  Nope.  Not really sure.  We know it's soft and wonderful and you will love it.

Our yarn is wound into hanks. If you would like us to wind the yarn into balls for easier knitting or weaving, please let us know. We are happy to provide this service at no charge. Please note this may require cutting the yarn if the hank has too many yards to be wound into a single ball.
