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.

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.
