The yarn a blend of soft wool from three sheep ranches. One ply is white wool from the Timm Ranch north of Vacaville. One ply is gray wool that is a blend of  Anderson Ranch wool and my own Jacob wool. The Jacob wool provides the natural color and together these fibers make a light gray tweed. The white wool is from fine wool sheep with Rambouillet, Targhee, and Polypay heritage.  Solano Blend yarn measures 1692 yards/pound. That puts it at a heavy fingering or light sport-weight yarn depending on the chart you use.

Each cone weighs 1.75 pounds (2,961 yds). The second photo is a close-up of this yarn after washing. This yarn is great for weaving as well as knit and crochet projects. Yarn is so new that I don't have knitting and weaving specs yet. That info will be added soon. My samples so far: Size 4-5 needles, Warp sett at 8 epi.
