Along with their three silks, Planet Earth Fibers has a lovely, very soft Merino Wool.
Available in most of the same colors as Planet earth Silk and 6-strand Silk (color card for wool here); it comes in 28 yard skeins.
It has quickly become my favorite wool.
As I said, this thread is very soft and has lots of air spun into it. What does that mean to you as a stitcher? It compresses enough to work just fine on 18 mesh, but it’s thick enough to provide good coverage on 13 and 14 mesh.
The matte threads in this ornament are both Planet Earth Wool.
I love the color range of Planet Earth’s threads. While there are not as many colors in wool as in silk or stranded silk, the colors match and are numbered and named the same, making substitutions a breeze.
Those who like to stitch with wool can have real problems these days. With Planet Earth Wool, you have the advantage of working with a single-ply thread combined with the lush softness only wool can give.
If you’ve never worked with wool before, you’ll find this thread so easy to use that stitching’s a joy.
