Fiber Characteristics
Columbia sheep raised in Wyoming provide the wool for Tones Light. One of the first sheep breeds developed in the United States, this large, friendly medium wool breed began in 1912 in Laramie, Wyoming, as a cross between longwool Lincoln rams and finewool Rambouillet ewes. They produce thick white fleeces with robust substance, wonderful for warm and durable sweaters, accessories, and blankets.

Dye Process
We begin with natural white wool, then dye a portion black, blending and spinning it into light and dark heathered base yarns. These are overdyed in brilliant hues using traditional skein dyeing methods, creating harmonious Tone Pairs to mix and match in colorwork, stripes, and solids.
