Hurd is the first of our two signature yarns. Tunis wool raised just three miles from our studio and milled in upstate NY. The Tunis breed originates from Tunisian Barbarin sheep, a breed that dates back to Biblical times. It's warm in color and has a bit of luster that adds to the results when dyed. A versatile wool, it is suitable for all fiber techniques from knitting, crocheting and weaving.
