JaggerSpun Heather Yarn , 3/8 Sport Weight

The Heather line by JaggerSpun is a top-dyed worsted spun wool yarn. The beautiful heather effect is created by blending together many different shades to achieve each unique yarn color.

JaggerSpun's Heather yarns will loft and become softer after washing. Tip: as with all natural wool yarns, try using a little hair conditioner instead of fabric softener when washing and see for yourself!

Here's a useful fact that you might want to consider: it takes on average about one (1) cone of yarn to make a sweater. Compare the cost-effectiveness of working straight from cones for your projects. You will avoid dealing with "joins" and your work will be faster and more fluid.

Meet A Variety Of Pattern Gauges

One of the hallmarks of the yarns manufactured by JaggerSpun and Jagger Brothers is their unsurpassed textural and color consistencies – accompanied by the fact that their yarns have a very low occurrence of knots when compared to yarns available through other manufacturers.  The Heather line has these characteristics, thus offering knitters an incredible amount of versatility when knitting using 2, 3, or more plies together straight out of the balls or cones purchased:  the results appear as though the original yarn had been spun using these “plies” to begin with.  Knit or crochet combining different color plies to obtain special effects. Combine using yarns from our other lines for trims and many other special effects.

Use for knitting, machine knitting, weaving, crochet, dying … the creative possibilities are endless. This yarn line can be used successfuly in felting projects.
