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 Berry Picking:
As its name suggests Berry Picking is inspired by that autumnal activity of picking berries and other soft fruits from the hedgerows and trees surrounding Monkley Ghyll. At this time of year we have a riot of fruits, blackberries, raspberries, plums, damsons and sloes. Our fingers are regularly stained with the deep purple hue of seasoned foragers and the kitchen overflows with blackberry crumble, damson jam and sloe gin!
