Hand spun yarn from our Shetland sheep, with a few other fibres in the mix.
Very soft and airy yarn suitable for wearing next to the skin.
Between 6 and 7 wpi.
This collection comprises:
Oatmeal - our mix of tawny Shetland and our wether sheep, Shrek, who is a mix of Texel and Ryeland. Estimated 2 metres.
Grey - all our Shetland colours mixed together with browny grey tones. Estimated at 2.3 metres.
Mixed - Shetland crossed with Romney from Fernhill Farm in the Mendips. Estimated at 4.2 metres.
This is all handspun on my Ashford wheel during the recent rains, then chain plyed to produce a relatively even but textured yarn suitable for warm snuggly clothing.
I can't wait to see what you make with it.
