The first thing that comes to mind when I squeezeÂ this yarn is “YUM”.Â Â It’s top merino so it’s extra lofty, which also means that it’s perfect for felting.Â The really cool thing about Shepherd’s Wool is that it’s practically homegrown- it is milled and spun right in East Jordan, MI.Â Â I have three projects picked out to do with this yarn, and that’s only because I don’t have time to pick out any more.Â I want a Wonderful Wallaby , a pair of Felted Clogs,Â and aÂ Covered Rock Saddlebag. Oh, and maybe a Felted Door Mitten. Check back in a few days and look for the new Noni patterns.Â She’s expanded into clothing designs (cute, cute, cute!) and she now uses Shepherd’s Wool for her designs.Â Can’t say as I blame her!Â Â We’re going to carry all 45 colors…. here’s what we have so far.Â Â – Susan

Hi, I have a question. I want 3 inches of ribbing on the bottom of my sweater and I need to know if I start the first row with even number of stitches or odd number to make it come out right. I am knitting the sweater in the round from the top to bottom.
I love the web site. Terry
