Merino and Rambouillet are the two breeds of sheep recognized internationally for soft wool.
Marr Haven Fine Grade Wool Yarn comes from our Merino-Rambouillet sheep, you can feel and see the luxurious softness.
Our yarn is cleaned 100% Chemical Free and can be classed as Organic Wool & Yarn. It is hand dyed using the safest dye possible, Jacquard Acid Dye (the acid is vinegar or powdered Citric Acid). We sold the flock so the yarn is now limited to the hand dyed shown on the 3 pages.

They may purchased on Etsy.com at Marr Haven Wool Farm

Marr Haven Wool Yarn is mule spun, to keep the natural elasticity of the wool fibers. This not only improves the look of your garments but gives them a better feel and longer wearability. You can learn more about the mule spinner in the Frequently Asked Questions

How our fine-grade wool is processed into Marr Haven Wool Yarn. After the sheep were shorn, the wool was "skirted"; poor quality, stained or weak fibers, are removed from each fleece. The cleaning process used on our wool is called "scouring"; only soap, water and salt. We believe the scouring process, which retains some lanolin, is better for the wool fibers than a carbonization process. The next step, called "carding", combs the wool into "roving" for spinning into yarn.

We have made every effort to show the true colors of our Hand Dyed Yarn, however monitors may vary the colors somewhat. These small close ups give you a glimpse of what is available, the full skein is shown on following pages. Each photo is linked to the correct page.

Read a review of Marr Haven yarn on the Knitter's Review website. Also, the Yarn Harlot has a comment on her blog about knitting with our yarn. We use Jacquard Dyes for our own color creations. See the moebius (at the bottom of the page) knit with worsted weight.

We used practices with our sheep and the farm that are environmentally sustainable. However, we do not pay to use the term organic. If you would like more information, please read about organic wool here.
