Our newest Shropshire Ply spin. A beautiful, bouncy and sticky 4 ply, expertly blended and spun in Ceredigion from wonderful fleeces of Shropshire, Dutch Spotted, Llanwenog, Lleyn, Castlemilk Moorit sheep and coloured alpaca. All from small flocks within 20 miles of Oswestry. This woolly yarn truly shows the diversity of the sheep roaming our Shropshire hills and plain. As we collect all these fleeces ourselves, we know that the sheep and alpacas that grow this beautiful fibre are all exceptionally well cared for and handled with gentleness.
We carefully select and personally inspect the fleeces that go into any Shropshire spin, so we know they are of excellent quality. Once we have the yarn back from scouring and spinning it goes into our dye pots at Y Dolydd in Llanfyllin. We kettle dye this deliciousness in small batches to create a range of semi-solid colours to delight you and inspire you. This particular blend of fleeces, with the subtle colouring from the Dutch Spotted, Castlemilk Moorits and alpacas has given us a gorgeous range of muted, heathery shades that have both of us reaching for the Fair Isle patterns.
All our colours are hand-dyed in small batches to give lovely, semi-solid shades. Please be aware that dyelots may differ so it's a good idea to get all the yarn for your project in one go.
100g gives 370m approximately of truly Shropshire gentle grey bounciness. Handwash then please lay flat to dry.
