Dorset and Horned Dorset three-ply, worsted spun sock yarn crafted from hand selected fleeces from Gamboa Farm, Cullenstone and Millcreek Farms in Virginia.

Worsted spun, 3-ply with nylon added for great sock yarn. Down type fleece has bulk for great cushion and the 3-ply, round yarn is comfortable for sensitive feet.
