Spun using a spinning mule built in 1910, the Mule Spinner yarns are extremely soft with an airy, lively characteristic all their own. Unlike new industrial spinning processes, mule spun yarns are drawn, spun, relaxed, then wound, mirroring the processing pattern of hand spinning. Many experts consider the mule to make the highest quality of handwork yarns.
With 2 strands of mule spun fibre, the Mule Spinner 2-ply 100% wool yarn is Custom Woolen Mills’ premier lightweight yarn. It can be used in knitting machines, for hand knitting, or in weaving for warp or weft.
