Naturally white Kerry Hill fibre blended with a single naturally black Zwartbles fleece resulting in a beautiful stone grey melange. Spun as a 3-ply aran weight yarn for a robust yarn with bounce and great stitch definition.
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.
