Cheviot is a long-wool sheep whose wool has a distinctive crimp. It's a hardy breed from the border between England and Scotland, and can be traced back as far as 1372. This yarn base is a 3 ply DK/light worsted weight, with a nice roundness and springiness. This would make beautiful sweaters to keep your whole family warm and cozy! As with all our OBSS yarns, this base will only be available for a short time and cannot be reproduced.
Our skeins are hand-dyed using acid dyes and a semi solid "kettledye" process that produces bold and expressive colors. Additionally, there may be some color bleed in the yarns first wash. If you plan to do color-work with your yarn, we recommend washing it beforehand.
