(Formerly known as Mountain Range Sport)
Our Snowy Range line is named after the Snowy Range Mountains located outside of Saratoga, Wyoming. We enjoy hiking, hunting and even happened to get engaged in the vast mountains surrounding Saratoga.
Snowy Range sport is our 100% Black & White Mountain Merino Rambouillet non-superwash wool that is grown, milled and spun in Buffalo, Wyoming. It is then shipped just two hours away to be hand dyed by me in Douglas, Wyoming.
The wool from black and white Rambouillet sheep is custom blended together to create a beautiful gray fiber. This adds a nice depth to any color that is dyed over the wool. All fibers are combed in one direction before spinning (known as worsted-spun) providing strength and smoothness to the finished yarn.
Our Snowy Range line is a 2 ply construction which provides more movement in your stitches creating a beautiful woolen texture. The yarn is more balanced than a single ply yarn yet not as round as a 3 ply.
Rambouillet wool is known for its loft, warmth and bounce due to the air trapped in the fibers. Being first cousins to the Merino sheep, you get an idea of the softness their wool possesses. Absolutely next to skin wearable with all of the benefits of an untreated wool.
