The fiber in this yarn comes from the Pronsolino Ranch in Mendocino County, California. The Pronsolinos originally emigrated from Italy, and have homesteaded their ranch since 1901. Angelo is the eldest son, has lived on the ranch his entire life, and at the age of 89, still tends his sheep.
The yarn is spun by a mill in Michigan which uses soap and mechanical methods to clean and card the fiber. It’s spun semi-worsted from a carded prep, so it’s lofty and nice to work with, yet the Corriedale fiber is sturdy and a good workhorse. The yarn is a 3-ply sport weight with a lot of air, a slight variation in thickness throughout, and medium bounce. It will create garments with a subtle texture and soft look.
