Barn - Dungarees

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 Dungarees:

Dungarees and overalls in all their variations have been everyday wear on farms for many years. My daughter Charlie and I even now have matching denim dungarees for working in the dye studio. These fading dungarees are the inspiration behind the Dungarees colourway, reflecting the many hues of denim blue found in the cloth of such essential  items of workwear.

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.
