Private milling of Falkland Merino

To mark the visit of Mr. Wool to our U.S. shores, Wool2Dye4 is going to offer 100 kilos of a private milling of superfine merino from the Falkland Islands. Some knitters and dyers may recall a gorgeous and creamy soft Falkland Bulky we had about two years ago. That yarn just few out the door.

Once someone bought a kilo of it, they came back and stocked up for more, and easy to understand as it has such unique properties to it. Just imagine, for a sec, the unique climate in the Falkland Islands, and what it takes to survive there in the open. These sheep are an example of survival of the fittest in the most refined sense of the word.

All I can tell you at this writing is that the 100 kilos of this new Falkland merino will be in more than one weight, and will be a finite amount of yarn available. We will have samples available, but by request this time. Usually we send out samples of new yarns with all orders, but these samples will be sent by request only.

We will be sending out a special newsletter with details within the next day or two, and also will add more details here, and on, as well.

Cannot wait to get my hands on this lovely stuff!
