Back Story


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.
