Barn DK 100% Pure British wool
WITH A ROOM OF MY OWN HAND-DYED SHADES FROM SUSAN CRAWFORD
20 HAND-DYED SHADES INSPIRED BY THE LANDSCAPE SURROUNDING MONKLEY GHYLL
100% British wool, grown, sheared and spun in Britain and hand finished here at Monkley Ghyll.
This artisanal yarn has been blended and spun exclusively for Susan Crawford at a local mill, using a unique blend of Jacobs and white and black Shetland fleeces, to create a delightfully lofty, soft, grey yarn displaying the characteristics of sheep from Monkley Ghyll and nearby farms. The yarn has been worsted spun for added smoothness, softness and longevity but retains a wonderful plumpness making the yarn warm and coccooning.
With these artisanal yarns, our goal is to showcase the native sheep breeds living on the moors, fells and hills of Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire, sourcing fibre from local farmers, as well as utilizing the fleeces from the sheep living at Monkley Ghyll Farm itself. Barn is the first in this range of yarns blended and spun to our specifications. A new generation of knitters and crocheters can now enjoy these wools from the heart of the British countryside.
