Sporty Sheep from Cedar Hill Farm Co. combines the two best things about dreamy yarn: squishability and cloud-like softness in repeatable solid colorways.

A must-have for shawls, baby items, cowls and sweaters when you want your project to be a bit heavier than fingering weight. The 3-ply construction means that this yarn's strands are round and springy.

This incredibly luxurious and squishy merino is hand-dyed using a unique eco-friendly dye process that requires small dye lots and creates vividly amazing and repeatable colors. 

Non-toxic dyes are fixed using an eco-friendly binding process that prevents bleeding and fading, even under normal washing machine conditions.  The superwash quality means less pilling and more elasticity than untreated merino. Skeins tend to weight slightly more than 50 grams on average.
