We continue to offer Peace Fleece worsted weight wool yarn in a variety of colors. Peace Fleece, located in Maine, is not your typical yarn company. In 1985, a local sheep farmer had a mission to foster peace between the Soviet Union and the American people. The family began spinning yarn with a combination of the two countries’ wool to cultivate cultural understanding, fair trade, and provide a truly beautiful and unique yarn. The owner continues to search for farmers who are willing to set aside historic enmities in exchange for new opportunities.
This blend of native/non-native American wool and Texas mohair is incredibly warm and comes in beautiful colors. The yarns will dramatically soften and fluff up with washing and use. Gauge: 4 stitches per inch on US #8 (5 mm).
