Product Description

We are delighted to announce the new annual shearing and color palette for Rosy Green Wool’s Melange Yarns!  There are 14 new colors, including 7 for Manx Merino Fine and 7 for Heb Merino Fine.The yarn and color selection is designed so that the yarns are completely interchangeable and work together for colorwork as well as single color patterns.  Manx Merino Fine is a Fingering weight yarn with 200m/50g (218yds/50g) that is particularly suitable for Fair Isle knitting, shawls, accessories, and luxurious tops. Because of its high share of softest Merino wool it can be worn comfortably on the skin. There is one dyelot and each skein is individually numbered.  

More about Manx Loaghtan  Sheep

​Manx Loaghtan is an endangered sheep breed that is originally from the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea and that was almost extinct at the beginning of the 1970’s. Meanwhile their number has increased to about 1500 ewes, but nevertheless the species is still at high risk. Today, Manx Loaghtan are bred only very rarely, because they do not fulfill the commercial requirements that dictate white wool and a faster growth of the lambs.

To our knowledge there are only two sheep farms in the entire United Kingdom that keep Manx Loaghtan according to organic farming standards and the precious mélange yarn is produced only in small amounts.
