Cormo Worsted—Kelp

26.00

What are the softest things you can think of? Add this yarn to the list.

Cormo Worsted is made from the wool of a pampered California flock in which each sheep has been selected for its fleece quality. They are raised organically, coated to keep their fleeces clean, and sheared by a gentle, expert shearer. The wool was then scoured without harsh chemicals and gently spun into a semi-worsted three-ply with the perfect amount of twist. Each 50 gram, 100 yard skein is the delightful marriage of shepherd’s vision and yarnmaker’s skill.

  • 100% deliciously squooshy Cormo wool 
  • 50 grams, 100 yards per skein
  • Semi-worsted, three plies
  • 16-18 stitches in 4 inches/10 cm on US 7/4.5 mm needles
  • Hand-dyed with professional grade acid dyes

Cormo sheep were developed during the 1960s in Tasmania by I.K. Downie, who crossed Corriedale Rams with carefully selected superfine Saxon Merino Ewes. Cormos are know for the fineness of their wool—17-23 microns—and for the consistent character of the wool throughout the fleece. 

This yarn has not been treated with chemicals to remove vegetable matter, but it was made from exceptionally clean fleeces, and whatever vegetable matter remains can be easily picked out while knitting.

I use only professional-grade acid dyes that are light- and wash-fast, and I strive to run my dye studio in an environmentally-sensitive way.
