Organic Merino Wool Worsted

Regular price $29.00 USD
Regular price Sale price $29.00 USD

The wool from our own flock of Merino sheep is triple-washed clean before the ladies of Handspun Hope begin creating yarn using the age-old craft of spinning with only wheels and hand tools.
This project gives over 120 women, most of them widows and orphaned survivors of the Genocide against the Tutsi, dignified employment. Handspun Hope is a certified member of the Fair Trade Federation, which guarantees fair wages and working conditions for the artisans.
