The yarn for the sample is a 100% merino ‘farm yarn’ from Merryall CT. It was spun at the Green Mountain Spinnery in Putney VT and is nearly identical to the New Mexico Organic, and Local Color. Since neither of those is marled, any DK or light worsted weight yarn can easily be subbed, please contact me with a DM if you have any questions.
