Gotland sheep produce very fine and particularly warm wool in shades from silver to charcoal – the only sheep that produce a truly grey fleece. The resulting yarn has a wonderful lustre, takes dye beautifully and knits up to produce a remarkably light fabric. The name Gotland refers to a Swedish breed developed in the early twentieth century.
This year’s new batch of Gotland DK has been produced with fibre that we have sourced from three farms located in Gloucester, Hampshire and Galloway. All our products are made in our own mill in Cornwall, where we scour, spin and finish all yarns.
