Entropy is hand-dyed and milled at Feedebrook Farm. It is a nice 2 ply DK weight yarn with approx. 13 wpi and is 100% wool. The wool is BFL (Blueface Leicester) and does not pill due to its long staple length. This yarn has a nice loft and a good hand.
The yarn line is named for the randomness of the colors when Singles are plied together. The colors gradate and change as you knit along. Skeins are similar but not completely identical. Also, not all monitors represent colors the same way, so colors may differ in person.
260 yds/ 100g
Glacier Sweep: Great meditative knit for 2.5 skeins (I used size 8 needles and followed the instructions for the worsted weight version.)
Springfield Chevron Hat: Use 1/2 skein of Feederbrook and a contrasting 50g skein of Woolstok
Wurm Hat: 1 skein
Soundtrack Pullover: use for the colorwork yoke of this sweater
Echo Cowl: 1 skein or more
Impact: When you buy yarn from Feederbrook Farm you are paying for hay after a long winter or new fencing. Feederbrook is more than a name, it is an actual small farm is located in northern Baltimore County in Maryland.

Hi, I got the colour Absolute Zero, a mix of light blues and off white. I am going to knit the Dovetail shawl on Ravelry. Someone has already done this pattern with Absolute Zero and Cascade Heather Blue. I love the effect. The yarn has a lovely texture, soft, and squishy, but with good strength to it. It feels good to the touch, which I think is crucial in a good yarn. We touch our yarn and it speaks to us. This yarn promises to be a good conversation partner.
I've already done a Shift Cowl in Entropy DK - loved how it felt as I knit it and now as I wear it. This color spoke to me for the Pressed Flowers shawl I've had on my dream knitting list and I know it will work up just gorgeous.
