Prairie Spun DK is a versatile 100% wool yarn from the Brown Sheep Company, a family-owned mill founded in Nebraska in 1980. Brown sheep sources its wool from sheep raised in the United States and has recycled 70-90 percent of its waste water daily for almost 10 years.

Prairie Spun is a tightly spun three-ply yarn that is perfect for a range of projects, including sweaters and accessories. A quick look at Ravelry shows that many knitters have chosen Prairie Spun for sweaters with stranded color work with excellent results.
