This spin is a gorgeous blend of local fleeces, each single fleece hand selected by us. It was scoured in Yorkshire then spun in Scotland by New Lanark Mills. With Welsh fleeces going into it, it is a truly British yarn. Traditionally woollen spun, it is bouncy, light and squishily warm. Great for all sorts of garments and accessories, it has great stretch and the colours naturally combine well for stranded colour work. Cables look great in it too! Even large cardigans and jumpers are light and warm compared to other garments of the same weight due to the woollen spin. It feels soft and cosily warm to wear.
34% Welsh mule
20% Sherino (Shetland x merino)

50g of truly British gorgeousness will give you 80 metres or 88 yards of squishy pleasure

I am stretchy and resilient but please hand wash me separately the first time and lay me flat to dry. I can go in the washing machine on a cold wool wash. Love me because I am special and of a limited edition.
All locally sourced fleeces, each one hand selected by us to provide you with the ultimate British hand knitting or crocheting happiness. Soft, bouncy and made to last.
Please note that the colours are for guidance only. Due to changes in the strength of natural dyes the colours may vary.
Please note that as this is a hand-dyed range there will be fluctuations in colour throughout the skeins. We strongly recommend that you purchase enough for your project as we cannot guarantee to have exactly the same colour if you run out later.
