A limited edition spin recreating our very first yarn to celebrate the Daughter of a Shepherd 5th Anniversary. Grade 1 Hebridean fibre from the North of England is gently processed in Yorkshire and worsted spun as a 3ply by John Arbon Textiles in Devon.

The overall colour is a complex and natural, dark pitch brown with a reddish tint that becomes silvery grey or tan in different lights. A soft handle produces a fabric with bounce and structure when knitted. The yarn retains its original (and famous) signature scent of the fields, flock and new lambs in straw-filled barns.

This yarn does not have a secondary scour after spinning so we recommend you wash swatches and allow the yarn to bloom to obtain an accurate gauge.
