We're delighted to have in stock the second batch of our most local wool yet: from flocks in Northamptonshire. This comes mostly from a flock of Shetlands in Braunston (with additions from neighbouring flocks); a major canal destination that can be reached by boat from our studio in one day! Flock owners Lynne and David have been breeding Shetland sheep for 17 years, focusing specifically on the quality of the wool, which is incredibly soft. The yarn has a heathered appearance, as many different coloured fleeces have gone into this delightfully local spin. This year we have 2 undyed, natural shades and 6 dyed.
