BARN SWALLOW sock yarn is a collaboration between The Small Bird Workshop and Wellington Fibres. The wool is sourced from a flock of Cheviot, Rideau Arcott, and Dorset crossbreed sheep located in New Lanark, Ontario, and the mohair is source from Wellington Fibres' own flock of angora goats. This yarn was spun with socks in mind, so it's strong, lustrous, and durable. It's also 100% synthetic-free and 100% Canadian!

**Please note: I have made every attempt to photograph the colour as accurately as possible, but colours may vary due to differences in screens. There may be colour variations between skeins, and therefore, it's advisable to alternate skeins in multi-skein projects. I dye in small batches, so please ensure you purchase enough yarn to complete your project, as yarn from another batch may be different.**
