Montadale is a medium wool, not super soft but not super crisp either. Once washed, the fabric is reasonably soft, but also sturdy and should wear well. The sheep are a cross of Cheviot and Colombia sheep. They are a mixed-use breed, bred for both wool and meat. This base is a 2 ply with a bit of variety in weight giving it a slightly rustic feel. 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.
