Lamb's Pride Superwash yarn is a line available from Brown Sheep Company. As far as I know, they only distribute wholesale, but many local yarn shops and a ton of online retailers carry this "Made in the USA" brand. I purchased my stash from my local shoppe. Lambs Pride has particular appeal for me because it is all natural and extremely affordable when compared to other wools carried in house at the yarn store. Each skien is less than $5.00. You can't beat that. Especially if you're whipping up something as a practice run on a design or need the nice finish of a real wool but not the high price of the more luxury end yarns.
I did some reading about the Brown Sheep company, it is a family owned business that started over 100 years ago. The mill is located in Nebraska and has been passed down generations as it matured and grew into what it is today. The company is interested in sustainability and green processing methods even while they grow and expand to over 1000 colors and multiple lines of yarn. It seems to be a responsible company that is succeeding while living out a real American dream type story. It was very inspirational learning about the company and makes me feel good to support them.
I have used the Lamb's Pride on a number of projects, including a set of gloves and hat I knit for my sister this past Christmas as well as a shawl I currently have on needles. The yarn produces very nice stitch definition but is a little stiff and a bit scratchy. It definitely feels like what most non-knitters imagine when you utter the word "wool." However, it does ease up in the scratchiness after you wet block a project, as I learned with my sister's gift. There are an absolute ton of colors to choose from and they have done a nice job making colors that look nice together. (Especially when you choose one of their yarns that has different colors spun together. "Mountain Peak" is one I have featured here.) I have not had any issues with the colors running, staining my wooden needles or washing out. I bet, and I haven't tried so I can't say for sure, this yarn would be great for any kind of color work. This superwash wool is available in fingering, sport, worsted and chunky...so if you can dream it, you can knit it with this yarn.
Bottom Line: This is a solid workhorse of a yarn. It is a good quality yarn for an affordable price from a responsible, family-owned company. I look forward to sampling some of their other yarns available.
