Devon Closewool Aran Yarn
With Rare Breed Society support and careful breeding, the breed has recovered from Critical status and is now classified as At Risk.
The short, dense wool varies from white to quite fawn, with younger sheep in particular having a mottled fleece. Our selection of finer, younger fleeces has produced a smooth, bulky, low twist, rich ivory, almost porridge-coloured, yarn influenced by the dark hairs of the wool. This yarn is probably soft enough to wear next to the skin and has great stitch definition.
