Beautiful fibre from a Kerry Hill crossed with a Wensleydale, worsted spun as a 3 ply aran weight yarn. The Wensleydale brings lustre and drape to the bouncier Kerry Hill characteristics.
Daughter of a Shepherd is thrilled to offer you this very limited, one-off yarn from the grass-fed Rosewood Farm flock. The sheep graze just outside York and the fleece was sent to Halifax Spinning Mill making this a yarn which is raised, processed, and spun within a 40 mile radius.
