We have loved Shepherd's Wool for a long time, not only because it's "local" to us here in Michigan, but also for its wonderful qualities for most any knitting or crocheting project. Shepherd’s Wool Yarn is made from a wonderfully soft Merino top. This yarn is worsted spun, meaning it’s very smooth and almost shiny in appearance. It will give great stitch definition for intricate patterns such as lace, cables, and knit/purl patterns. We've used it for blankets, scarves, shawls, sweaters, even baskets.
