Nurtured is a natural blend of fine wools (Rambouillet + Targhee + Merino) dyed in the fleece and spun by Green Mountain Spinnery. What is dyed in the fleece? The fibers are dyed prior to the yarn being spun resulting in all the different layers of colors blending together producing a heathered look. This yarn has a soft hand, plied construction for strength, woolen spun allowing flexible gauge, great for cables and intricate stitch patterns, and bringing texture to plain stockinette stitch.
