Description

The Manx Loagthan is a particularly striking sheep, some having up to six horns. Their fleeces are mid to dark brown but bleach to cream at the tips in the sun, so the colour can range from a full brown to a softer, deeper and more varied shade.

The yarns are generally medium in fine-ness but we find them soft enough to wear next to the skin or to use for outer wear. We supply 4-ply, Double Knitting and Aran weights.

  1. Yarn review by Tricia Stockdale

    by Tricia on 12 Nov 2013

    The yarn is dull in that it has little lustre but a lovely deep brown colour. The yarn was quite firm but yet surprisingly smooth. It is easy to break by hand but very tough when knitted, though it does not have much elasticity.
    Good for jackets, bags or edging another garment.
    I guess it would suit dying - would like it in Chunky or even Super Chunky perhaps?
    I would buy it if I had a specific project for it and think the price is OK.
