Ozark Handspun - Ozark Opulent Yarn
Wild and woolly! We love artisan crafted Ozark Handspun yarn. Created by artisan David Gentzsch, every ball of Ozark Handspun yarn is hand crafted in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri, each delightful hank is a spun mixture of mohair and wool. Gentzsch oversees the entire process from raising the sheep, to sheering, cleaning, combing, dying and spinning. This is a rare find that a designer participates in creating a yarn from start to finish - the results are amazing!

I made a drop-stitch scarf and had so many comments that I ordered yarn to do 2 more in different colors. The second ball, in Mystical Night had much more brown than the picture and had some small wood chips but it was still beautiful. I'm looking forward to my third project. I would order more.

This yarn works up super fast, and has lots of texture. I knitted a drop stitch scarf, and it turned out lovely.

I bought 2 skeins and used a size 19 needle and knit in garter stitch to make a 5" wide by 50" long scarf. I still can't believe this yarn has mohair, as I'm so used to mohair itching, but this feels good wool, but with a mohair luster to it. I agree with the previous poster who found wood pieces in it, I took tweezers and pulled them out while I was knitting but I'd rather have no wood chips in it at all. I recently ordered 3 more skeins for another (wider/longer) scarf, so I hope it was just the colorway I ordered before (Rebecca) that had the wood in it.

Beautiful color combos. Knits up nicely. The only complaint I have is that is really sheds! Hopefully that will stop after awhile. Otherwise, the yarn is as expected.

I just love the look of this yarn. I made a scarf using this yarn and loved it so much I ordered more in another color.

While I like the yarn, I did not like the finished product--the drop stitch scarf. It has a sloppy and amateurish look. I plan to rip it out and find another use for the yarn. Any ideas for using it with another yarn would be appreciated.

I was so excited to get this yarn and make a few scarves! And I do love this yarn. However, with 2 of my skeins of yarn, I found small pieces of wood in the yarn. If I hadn't found it and the person putting the scarf on had, it would have been uncomfortable for them! Who wants a piece of wood, no matter how small, sticking in your neck?! I wondered where this wood even came from, but by it being in 2 skeins of yarn (2 different colors), it has to come from the creation of the yarn. Other than the wood pieces, I love this yarn!

One skein was not enough to make the scarf as long as it appears in the picture
