Our premier plyed yarn line, Mule Spinner Yarns are made from the finest Canadian grown Merino and Rambouillet wool and spun using a Spinning Mule built in 1910.
They are extremely soft with an airy, lively characteristic all their own. Unlike new industrial spinning processes,
Mule Spun yarns are drawn, spun, relaxed, then wound, mirroring the processing pattern of hand-spinning.
Many experts consider the Mule to make the highest quailty of handwork yarns.
There are approximately 198m or 216 yd per 112 gms / 4oz skein. For knitting, we recommend 4mm to 5mm needles.
This is a Light to Medium weight yarn according to the Craft Yarn Council's Yarn Standard.
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 skein of yarn slowly by alternating skeins row for row.
