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 Lime Mortar:

The stone walls of the farmhouse and the barns around it are held together by lime mortar a traditional method of glueing together the stones and widely used throughout history in many different countries and cultures. Lime mortar can be coloured to match the substance it is being used to hold together, but here at the farm it is a natural soft beige with darker brown tones speckled through it. Lime Mortar attempts to replicate this with a complex, slightly variegated colour with darker and lighter tones throughout the skein.
