Be inspired by the natural beauty of the Nebraska prairie. Made with U.S. wool in 3 plies, Prairie Spun DK is the perfect weight for crafting something to wear and love. The color palette is inspired by nature and the prairie landscape that surrounds our mill. Many crafters go for DK weight yarn because it stitches up relatively quickly, yet is lightweight enough to wear comfortably in a shawl, sweater, hat or pair of mittens. Prairie Spun DK is a delight to work with because of its lightweight feel, bounce, and resiliency.

Brown Sheep Yarns are permanently moth proofed using a non-insecticide; from their FAQ:
"We use a non-insecticide chemical called Ecolan CEA to moth-proof our wool. It is added to the dye bath at the same time as the dyes and is “permanent” in the sense that it will not wash, rub, or dry clean off the wool. The treatment works as an insect resist agent by making the wool protein unpalatable to the wool moth larvae."
