Stone Wool Corriedale is a 3-ply, cozy Aran weight yarn showcasing the warmth and depth of natural wool. 

The Corriedale breed was developed from crossing fine-wool Merinos with longwool Lincoln sheep, a combination that created soft-to-the-touch wool with a long staple length. Stone Wool Corriedale is spun from carefully sourced Corriedale fleeces, and strikes the perfect balance of hard-wearing and supple. Knits can be worn close to the skin, and will wear well as they age from season to season.  

Stone Wool was started by avid knitter and hand spinner, Whitney Hayward.  She began handspinning yarn in her Maine, USA home in 2014. One thing led to another, and soon she was sampling wools from farms all over New England. As she spun, she fell again and again for each new breed, delighting in the variations in fleeces from breed to breed and even sheep to sheep, and how different spins affected each fiber type. Soon she was spinning too much to knit herself, so she began selling her yarn under the moniker Stone Wool, named after her family's Northern Missouri farm. 

Wanting to bring her love of breed specific wools to more knitters, Whitney joined up with Pam Allen's team at knitting accessory brand Twig & Horn to begin producing Stone Wool's first mill-spun yarn. In keeping with Stone Wool's roots, the brand continues to make breed specific yarns in small batches, as close to home as they can.

Made in the USA.
