A fantastic sock yarn! This has all the beauty of mohair and wool, along with the added strength of nylon. It has a slight halo and is likely to bloom a little after washing. It will work into lovely garments, look good in lacy projects, and of course make divinely cozy comfy socks!
These skeins were spun using the fleeces from our angora goats (adults). Their fleeces were blended with fine wool ( Charollais cross Dorset) for added memory to help your garments keep their shape and with nylon to add strength.
These skeins have been washed using Kookaburra Delicate ( a delicate wool wash with unique blend of Tea Tree Oil and Lavender Oil) .

Please note: As of January 2018, there has been a change in this yarn. Due to us having begun working with a new mill Prairie Crocus has changed weight. This is now the yardage you can expect in this lovely yarn, however, if you have worked with Prairie Crocus before please be very sure to check your gauge!
