North Light Fibers Ocean Avenue is a worsted-weight, 3-ply, 100% Merino wool yarn with 180 yards per 85 gram skein. Delicious Merino wool is spun into a bouncy, classic worsted-weight yarn by North Light Fibers, a micro-mill on Block Island. Perfect for classic garments and trendy accessories, the beautiful colorways and delightful hand make for a wonderful yarn to work with.
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
