Recommended gauge 20-22 sts to 10cm (4in) using 3.75-4mm needles.

This artisanal yarn has been blended and spun exclusively for Susan Crawford at a local mill, using a unique blend of Jacob and white and black Shetland fleeces, to create a delightfully lofty, soft, grey yarn displaying the characteristics of British breed sheep. The yarn has been worsted spun for added smoothness, softness and longevity but retains a wonderful plumpness making the yarn warm and coccooning.

 With artisanal yarns such as Barn, the 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 our own small flock. Barn was the first in this range of yarns blended and spun to our specifications and holds a special place in our hearts. A new generation of knitters and crocheters can now enjoy these wools from the heart of the British countryside.
