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.
Dungarees and overalls in all their variations are everyday wear on the farm. My daughter Charlie and I even 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 those essential items of workwear.
