Laramie - MMW Yarn RenEWE


Laramie, Wyoming is an eclectic town comprised of college-town vibrancy, Western history and lore, and epic outdoor adventure. The home of the Wyoming Cowboys and the famous Bucking Horse "Steamboat".




Tidbit - Laramie derived its name from a French/Canadian trapper named Jacques La Ramie.










The town was established in 1868 with the advancing of the Union Pacific Railroad.

Laramie had some wild early years of untamed western lawlessness but then settled into the normal rhythms of a frontier town. Laramie is situated on a high plateau between two mountain ranges making it a great fit for a warm and rugged Rambouillet yarn.



This yarn is a Mountain Meadow Wool favorite! 2-ply Mountain Merino® Rambouillet a classic worsted-weight yarn with a liveliness in the fiber and great stitch definition. Products crafted with the rugged beauty and extra loft of this skin-soft Mountain Merino® Rambouillet will be prized for many years. 
Available in natural cream and 24 artisan dyed colors. Be sure to also look at our 2-ply worsted Natural Grey's and 3-ply Worsted Natural Grey Tweeds. These contrast nicely with "Laramie" and are produced as combed yarns for a smooth finish.
