Simply Wool Aran
You'd have to shear your own sheep to get any more natural, this 100% Eco wool yarn is good for you and Mother Earth. The product of centuries of shepherding tradition, the balanced twist and dense, plump hand gives this yarn fabulous definition for textured or cabled sweaters and accessories. No dyes or bleach are used to process the yarn; the eight natural shades are created by meticulously sorting the fiber as it comes off the sheep. As colors are naturally occurring, some variation from skein to skein is normal.
3/2022 update: Please note, initially this yarn was listed as a Bulky weight; after many tests and customer feedback, we have determined it produces an Aran/Heavy Worsted fabric using the needle size and gauge information provided. Shipments from before this date will still be labeled as Bulky weight.
