Germantown is made in the USA using 100% American wool yarn and is inspired by the historic Germantown wool industry in Pennsylvania. It is a round and puffy worsted weight yarn that’s ideal for projects that need an everyday but high quality material - imagine sweaters that are meant to last decades!
Courtney Kelley at Kelbourne Woolens has written a wonderful post about the making of this yarn, you can read it on their blog here.
