Lorna's Laces is a hand-dyed yarn company that is based in Chicago. Their many solids and multis play well together in all sorts of different projects. Shepherd Sport is a 100% Superwash Merino Wool, great for easy care projects, and soft enough for little ones. A three ply yarn, it has great stitch definition and shows off cables well. A great yarn for mosaic knitting as well, the multis and solids can be paired together to make daring or subdued combinations. Shepherd Sport is also a great yarn for thicker socks, especially cozy during cold winter months. Explore the many unique colors that the Lorna's Laces line has to offer!

    This yarn is machine washable, and makes a great baby blanket. Mom can toss it in the laundry with little hassle! The Green Valley color is not so green, but has some lovely shades of blue with splashes of yellow. Happy knitting!
