Chesapeake
Chesapeake, part of the Verde Collection of environmentally conscious yarns, is a wonderful combination of fibers in a yarn that takes you through all seasons. The blend of cool, crisp, organic cotton combined with extra soft Merino wool and the gauge of 5 sts per inch make this a great yarn for both adult and children's garments. The heathered colors are the lovely result of the different ways the vegetable and animal components take the dyes.

See more yarns from the Verde Collection here.
