The Merino wool that goes into the Mount Vernon Collection comes from reputable ranches located in the U.S. Mountain states. Cestari pays a premium for the highest quality Merino available in order to ensure the future of the American sheep & wool industry and to be able to make a top quality merino yarn. The merino is soft and untreated by chemicals. The Mount Vernon Collection is hand dyed using a small batch kettle method.

Hand wash in cold water with mild detergent. Allow to dry naturally on a flat surface. Do not dry clean so as to retain the natural lanolin oils in the wool.

A percentage of the natural lanolin has been deliberately retained in the yarn. This helps to protect the wool and acts somewhat as a water repellent for the garment.

Newer lots are now called Mt Vernon collection, and are still hand kettle-dyed. Yarn was formerly called Floral Collection and sold in 4 oz./113 g, 210 yd. skeins. Same base yarn, with a new name.

Mt. Vernon yarn is now available in 2ply heavy worsted, 3ply bulky, 2ply fingering & 3ply DK!
