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 Thistle Head:
From mid-summer onwards thistles of all types grow boldly and rapidly, their stunning purple flowers standing head and shoulders above all other plants and grasses in the meadow. Thistle Head captures that moment of vibrancy before the flower dies and the thistledown appears and the goldfinches swoop to feed off the thistle seed.
Non superwash 100% wool. Handwash in cool water using a gentle wool wash and dry flat.
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.
