Barn - Hay Bale

About Barn
100% British wool - a unique blend of Jacob, white Shetland and black Shetland fleeces
225 metres / 246 yards per 100g

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 distinctive characteristics of these wonderful sheep breeds. The yarn has been worsted spun for added smoothness, softness and longevity but retains a wonderful plumpness making the yarn warm and cocooning. Barn creates fabric with a beautiful texture, equally good in plain stitch patterns as well as textural patterns, cables and lace.

About Hay Bale:

Each summer on farms the traditional ritual of hay making takes place. A meadow is set aside, ungrazed to allow the grass to grow long and dense. When the time is right and the weather grants the farmer a week of dry conditions the grass is cut then spread out on the ground, turned and dried, the long blades of grass changing from a vibrant green to a complex sun-faded yellow. Once dried these dried grasses, are gathered together into bales, the grass now called hay.

Care Instructions
Non superwash 100% wool. Handwash in cool water using a gentle wool wash and dry flat.
Please note
As these yarns are hand-dyed please be aware that there will be subtle variation between dye lots. Because of this please be sure to purchase enough yarn for your project.
