Approximately 73 yards of 3 ply wool per 2 Oz. skein, 40+ strands, each 60" long
(We've found the amount of Persian wool in 2 Oz. of wool varies from approximately 40 to 48 strands each 60" long. The minimum yardage is about 67 and the maximum yardage is about 79 yards of wool per 2 Oz. The amount of strands varies due to the natural differences in wool.)
The yarn is spun from 100% long-staple virgin wool with extraordinary strength for no fraying or breaking during stitching. This versatile, moth proof, 3-ply yarn is perfect for heirloom-quality needlepoint, crewel, cross-stitch and more. Comes in dye lots.
Also available in other quantitites 4 oz (approximately 150 yards), and 8 yard skeins. We're happy to make two 2 oz hanks out of a 4 oz hank or special order larger quantities. Please contact us with inquiries.
