Timm Ranch sport-weight yarn-cones
I selected 220 pounds of the finest wool on the Timm’s shearing day. I skirted fleeces and shipped the wool to Mountain Meadow Wool in Wyoming where it was scoured, carded, and spun. There is a minor amount of vegetable matter in the yarn because Mountain Meadow does not use any chemical process to remove it.
The yarn has not been washed and looks and feels very different than it will be after finishing. If you base your knitted or woven projects on measurements taken from the coned yarn or an unwashed skein, you’ll be fooled. I got 18 WPI when measuring yarn right from the cone and 14 WPI when measuring washed yarn. You will want to base your weaving calculations and sett on the washed wool. I have been weaving at a sett of 8 epi in lace and twill patterns and the finished slightly fulled pieces have wonderful drape and softness. If you plan to knit with this yarn I would wash it first. Just soaking in water and then drying is enough to let the yarn will bloom and see what it is like in it’s finished state. In photo of skeins, the dyed skein has been wetted and washed during the dyeing process.
