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 Sunset Over The Bay:
An intriguing shade, not peach nor coral, soft and warm with hints of apricot, Sunset Over The Bay captures one of those very special dusks when the entire sky is illuminated in a golden blush.
Grown, sheared and spun in Britain
