Junegrass: A Colorado Yarn Project by Fancy Tiger Crafts

Junegrass is a small batch yarn entirely grown and milled in Colorado. Junegrass: Batch Two is made with three breeds of wool. Lincoln longwool, in shades of grey from silver to charcoal, adds a silky sheen and will bloom a bit with knitting. White Merino/ Rambouillet Cross is springy and soft. A touch of CVM in a dark brown is blended in.

Batch Two has a little more yardage per skein at 300 yards per 100 grams. It can work up wonderfully at a sport weight gauge, or at a DK gauge. The high percentage of longwool will bloom with blocking and hand washing, and will add warmth and fullness to your finished project.

The wool comes from just two Colorado sheep farms--located in Hopper, CO and Wellington, CO. Scouring and spinning is done at a small mill in Craig, CO. From our hands to yours, enjoy!
