The gentle colours blend beautifully in the finished project.

Seriously, you won't be able to stop stroking this yarn! It comes from sheep who have amazing long curly locks and it is a hand dyer's favourite for its colour uptake. The yarn is worsted spun and plied, and has a draping handle, making it ideal for statement pieces. Remember to always block your projects for the best outcome. Please note that this is a non-superwash yarn, so it can be felted if you want.

Flock owners Chris and Barry favour black Leicesters, which is why the yarn has a heathered appearance, as all the shades of black, grey, silver, and white have gone into this delightfully local spin.

They are striking in their appearance, with white and brown fleeces and multiple horns! We sorted the fleeces by hand, separating the white from the brown. We have natural and dyed shades available. The wool is hardwearing and makes lightweight, warm garments that soften beautifully with age. Use it for hats, mittens, jumpers, and house socks and slippers. The yarn is made up of 2 plies, which lends itself well to lace patterns and stranded colourwork. This yarn hasn’t been superwash-treated, so it will felt if you want it to. This also makes it an excellent candidate for steeking, if you’re brave enough!

    Lyn is spun in Devon by John Arbon Textiles, from wool sourced locally to the mill. It's a worsted, plied DK weight yarn with a fabulous sheepy texture. The Exmoor Blueface and Bluefaced Leicester wools provide super softness and warmth, while the Wensleydale wool lends lustre and a subtle shine to the blend. It's a yarn dyer and crafter's dream! We recommend it for a wide range of stitch patterns and projects.

    Aysgarth is 100% lustrous British Wensleydale wool. Its appearance is similar to the shine and the halo of mohair and it feels like a warm woolly hug. Seriously, you won't be able to stop stroking this yarn! It comes from sheep who have amazing long curly locks and it is a hand dyer's favourite for its colour uptake. The yarn is worsted spun and plied, and has a draping handle, making it ideal for statement pieces. Remember to always block your projects for the best outcome. Please note that this is a non-superwash yarn, so it can be felted if you want.

    Fibre: Sourced from Worcestershire, UK

    Recommended needle & hook size: 2.5mm - 3.75mm (always check the pattern)

    This is a light and airy woollen-spun and plied yarn from a single farm in Worcestershire. Jacob sheep are one of the oldest native breeds in the UK. They are striking in their appearance, with white and brown fleeces and multiple horns! We sorted the fleeces by hand, separating the white from the brown. We have natural and dyed shades available. The wool is hardwearing and makes lightweight, warm garments that soften beautifully with age. Use it for hats, mittens, jumpers, and house socks and slippers. The yarn is made up of 2 plies, which lends itself well to lace patterns and stranded colourwork. This yarn hasn’t been superwash-treated, so it will felt if you want it to. This also makes it an excellent candidate for steeking, if you’re brave enough!
