Rare breed, small flock yarn from the blade shorn fleeces in the HoneyWoods flock and other blade shorn flocks in the South West.
Sent to Rampisham Hill Mill in Dorset for washing and carding.
As a rare breed it is important to promote their fleeces for crafting as a way to encourage breeding and the continuation of the breed.
A truly small scale, rare breed, ethical, low mileage, sustainable yarn.
100% natural plastic-free yarn with a soft shade of white or brown. It accepts natural dyes easily. Skeins are packaged with a 100% recycled label and recycled tape, and posted in recycled mailers.
Blade shorn, of course, and hand spin by me on the farm.
