Burly Spun

Brown Sheep Burly Spun is one of our favourites. We have carried it at the Knit Café since we opened our doors back in 2004. Why? 

  • Bulky yarns are crazy fun to work with - so winning with instant gratification!
  • Burly Spun has a hardy spin that holds up over time. 
  • Brown Sheep yarns come in terrific, heathered colours.
  • Burly Spun won't break the bank with excellent yardage for a fair price. 
  • You can't beat 100% wool for coziness!

Brown Sheep Company is committed to carrying on the legacy begun over 100 years ago on their family farm in Western Nebraska. Originally a sheep farm, Brown Sheep Company is now in its third generation as a wool spinning mill.  Brown Sheep practises localized and sustainable production and is an innovator in the arena of recycling. The mill recycles 70-90% of their dye water! 

We love Burly Spun so much we can't stop knitting with it. You can find it featured in many Knit Café Designs. Check out:
