This 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 cables and colour work. Obviously everyone loves their own baby but this yarn is truly a delight to knit with and if I could only knit with one yarn for the rest of my life this would be it.

Please wash me separately the first time. Afterwards you can wash me cold in the washing machine but lay me out gently flat to dry. Love me for my resilience and squishyness and because I am a limited edition.
