North Light Fibers Atlantic is a worsted-weight, 3-ply, 100% Falkland wool yarn with 170 yards per 70 gram skein. Atlantic is made with 100% Falkland Islands Merino wool, and processed at North Light’s Block Island micromill. This soft, bouncy worsted weight is a classic wool yarn with an amazingly soft hand that feels even softer worked up than in the skein. Great for everything from traditional garments to trendy accessories, Atlantic is an amazing USA processed yarn.
North Light Fibers produces high quality, handcrafted, minimally processed artisanal yarns made 100% on Block Island. The natural fibers are taken from shearing and dying to carding, spinning and plying to create beautiful saturated colors. Given the seasonal nature of the island, the economy is based on summer tourism. North Light Fibers is working hard to develop year round manufacturing and potential to create items on the island that are exported off-island for sale, expanding the diversity of the island’s economic base
