Grown and spun in the USA, Mohawk Wool is part of our MountainTop Collection of yarns in naturally colored undyed yarns. The lustrous merino and lofty romney wool combine with a bit of nylon in this sport weight 3-ply yarn, with a generous 375 yards in each hank. Mohawk Wool makes a beautiful fabric in any stitch – lace, cables, textures or plain stockinette.


It may be called a sweatshirt but the details make it much more versatile – It can be dressed up or down and worn with anything. With the back just slightly longer than the front, the oversized fit drapes beautifully, and the faux-buttoned detail down the back adds elegance.
