Barn - Glimpse Of The Sea

About Barn:

This new artisanal yarn by Susan Crawford is a unique wool in a natural shade of grey. Featuring a blend of 3 British sheep breeds, the characteristics of local sheep from around Monkley Ghyll Farm are combined to create a delightfully lofty, grey yarn. Jacob fleece is blended with white Shetland, then a strand of black Shetland adds further depth. The result is a yarn which is extremely soft to handle, yet very warm and hard-wearing. Barn creates fabric with a beautiful texture, equally good in plain stitch patterns as well as textural patterns, cables and lace.

About Glimpse Of The Sea:

On a summer's day a tantalising glimpse of the sea can be seen from the hills surrounding Monkley Ghyll. As the sun's rays hit the water, it turns a complex mix of blues and greens with flashes of paler tones where the sun bounces off the swell and deeper tones where the sun fales to penetrate and the shadows remain.
