Mill-spun Portland wool yarn in DK and Aran weights.
DK is a 2 ply yarn around 220m per 100g, and Aran is a 3 ply yarn around 150m per 100g.
Rare breed, small flock yarn from a smallholder near our farm.
Saved from the compost heap, sent to Rampisham Hill Mill in Dorset for washing, carding and spinning.
Portland is a warm soft fleece with a lovely cream colour and suitable for dyeing. As a rare breed it is important to promote their fleeces for crafting as a way to encourage breeding and care of these beautiful animals.
You are supporting the ongoing survival of a beautiful Dorset rare breed sheep, raised in Somerset and spun in Dorset. A truly small scale, rare breed, ethical, low mileage, sustainable yarn.
100% natural plastic-free yarn with a soft shade of warm white. It accepts natural dyes easily. Skeins are packaged with a 100% recycled label and recycled tape, and posted in recycled mailers.
Please note this is not blade shorn, but next year's batch will hopefully be.
Once you add to your basket, you can then edit the amounts before you check out.
