Wold Sport - Dock Seed

About Wold Sport Weight:

This artisanal yarn is a unique blend of  the wool of three British sheep breeds known for their beautiful fleeces, Southdown, Bluefaced Leicester and Shetland, creating a fabulously soft white yarn with bounce and spring. This sport weight yarn is made of 4 plies spun to create a bouncy, airy fibre.

147 metres/160 yards per 50g.

 Recommended gauge from 26 to 28 sts to 10cm (4in) using 3.25-3.75 mm needles.

 

All shades are limited edition and dyed by hand here at Monkley Ghyll Farm in a range of shades inspired by the landscape on this hillside farm.

About Dock Seed:

An edible if unappealing plant, Dock, grows rampant in the fields of Monkley Ghyll. Fortunately sheep love the taste and tuck into the leaves of the Dock plant whenever they come across one. However as autumn approaches the flowers of the Dock turn to seed and turn a deep earthy red, and form an elegant silhouette standing high above the grass around it.
