This yarn is a deep bittersweet (red-purple) hand dyed over a natural light brown colored Romney fleece. The fleece of this Romney was light brown. Romney sheep have lovely fleeces. It is the softest of the British Long Wools. This is a classic woolen spun yarn (lofty and open). A skein knits up quickly into a warm cowl, a pair of mittens, boot toppers, a hat or other accessory.

This is an overdyed yarn - the original Romney fleece is a light brown. My studio is a smoke free and pet friendly environment.
