This 100% wool yarn is ideal for needlepoint. The plies can easily be separated to cover the different sizes of canvas. One strand of the three ply yarn will nicely cover a 13-count canvas, use two plies for 10-count canvas, and all three plies for 8-count canvas. Each skein is approximately 8 yards. We can also obtain larger, 164 yard hanks for backgrounds or other large yardage needs.
