"Spry" is a special limited edition DK weight yarn. The yarn was spun at a small Wyoming family-owned mill using local Rambouillet wool blended with 30% silk. I worked with the mill to create a firmly spun and plied 3-ply yarn that retains its next-to-the-skin softness with minimal pilling. I knit myself a cowl-necked sweater from this yarn and find it is my go-to sweater. I have worn it 2-3 times/week since I finished it in October. I wear my sweater with a crew-neck top and find the sweater collar is soft and comfortable against my neck all day, and I’m one of those sensitive types. My sweater shows little pilling after 3 months of heavy wear. Spry is a non-superwash yarn. Shown at right in Weathered Wood and Flathead Cherry Colorways.
