SPRITE is our rustic 3 ply sport-weight yarn in 60% merino and 40% corriedale wool. 

Merino wool is known for its softness, shine and breathability. It ranges in different types, measured by microns which are used to determine the diameter of the wool fiber. The smaller the number, the finer the fiber. It is a durable and naturally insulating fiber. 

Corriedale wool is a medium-fine fleece. The wool ranges from 25-30 microns in diameter. Corriedale has a well-defined crimp and a nice staple length. The softness and luster add a bounciness to the merino blend.
