Pit River Wool

My aunt and uncle have a sheep ranch in California and kindly gave me some of their wool, which I am going to use to knit a vest for my dad (my uncle's brother). They raise sheep that is naturally colored, so this gray wool is the natural color of the sheep - it has not been dyed. Most wool yarn is dyed white wool, but there are a small group of ranchers and farmers who raise naturally colored (black, gray, brown) sheep. I am adding a link for Pit River Wool to the links section on the right.
