This squishable yarn is made from 100% NYS unregistered Cormo wool. Spun up into a 2 ply sportweight and retaining a little of its natural lanolin it is a perfect sweater yarn. It is spongy-soft and does have a little chaff (hay) in it, the mill I use doesn’t use a harsh chemical wash to dissolve it.
What is an unregistered Cormo you ask?
Well, Cormo is breed developed by cross breeding (in a specific %, with specific breed characteristics) Merino, Lincoln & Corriedale sheep. The original Cormo line was started in Tasmania. This yarn is made from a flock that do have the proper breed background but are not from the Tasmanian line, therefor Cormo in hand and looks but but not registration-wise with the breed association.
