Balance offers a unique, tweedy appearance due to its cotton/wool blend that is warm but not too warm. The certified organic cotton from Texas offers breathability and smoothness while the certified organic merino adds body, warmth, and spring. Balance is processed in Midwestern and Northeastern USA in accordance with organic guidelines. Please alternate skeins as you knit to omit color pooling in finished garment.
When ordering, please know that dye lots do not match between 50g & 100g skeins.

O-Wool has been discontinued and closed its doors in December 2022. O-Wool has always been one of Yarn Loop's favorite brands, and we are happy to have a small selection for a limited time. Sadly, we cannot re-supply this amazing yarn, so order your favorites before they are gone.
