Prairie Wool Bulky 6-Strand rolls are six strands of carded, unspun wool for knitting, spinning, or felting. They are made from 100% pure new Dorset wool, giving them lots of loft. They are excellent for knitting the heavy outdoor sweaters iconic to the Canadian west and can be substituted into the old White Buffalo Yarn patterns roll for roll.
They are available in the natural Sheep Shade colourway, Col 01 through Col 05, and a large selection of Standard Dyed heathers. Price is per 8oz roll.
There are approximately 121 m or 132 yd per 226 gms / 8 oz roll. For knitting, we recommend using 6mm-8mm needles, 5sts/5cm.
This is a Bulky to Super Bulky weight yarn according to the Craft Yarn Council's Yarn Standard. You can find their simple guide to yarn weights here.
Please note: due to the small batch nature of our yarns, colour pooling can occur (though we work very hard to avoid it). When knitting large swatches of a single colour, we recommend introducing a new ball of yarn slowly by alternating balls row for row.
