Yarn Info

Shorn 2019 is a 3-ply sport weight yarn that has about 250yds per 4oz. It’s in a beautiful blended grey made up of Corriedale and Teeswater wool from right here in Illinois! We cared for some of Cathe’s sheep from Seven Sisters Farm on our own pastures this summer and this blend is bouncy, next-to-skin soft, and perfect for cables and texture. It’s been milled in the midwest, at Stonehedge Fiber Mill, and it’s all natural–no synthetic stuff, no dyes, nothing but awesome, local, natural fiber!

Exclusive Patterns

Kephren Pritchett ( designed two wonderful accessories just for this yarn: the Traveling Hat and the Traveling (fingerless) Mitts. Both take full advantage of the plump, 3-ply yarn to make their cables pop!


  • Each skein: $25*
  • Traveling Hat Kit (1 skein of yarn, digital download code): $30*
  • Traveling Mitts Kit (1 skein of yarn, digital download code): $30*

*Domestic shipping will be $6 for 1 skein, $8 for 2 skeins, and $12 for 3+ skeins
*International shipping is available, but costs will vary by location

I’ll begin accepting Launch Day orders* on Jan 31st at 2:00pm CST; shipping will begin on Feb 3rd. *Please note that there is a limited yarn supply. I will accept orders on a first-come, first-served basis. If I cannot fill your order, I’ll let you know as as soon as possible.

Thank you all so much for your support of local sheep, fiber, mills, and community! I’d love to share a little piece of this flock with you 🙂

    I have some of this yarn, and it is lovely. Fine, soft correidale, and I love the light grey color Melissa got by combining white and black fleeces!
