This is a limited edition hand dyed yarn spun by The Natural Fibre Company in Cornwall, UK for a really gorgeous luxury British yarn.

The wool comes from the fleeces of just four of my sheep; Graínne, Boudicca, Siwan and Alfie. It has been blended with 20% tussah silk to enhance the lustre and handle.

The skeins are hand wound and hand dyed by me in small batches back in my dye studio in Mid Wales on our farm where the fleeces were grown and sheared.

  • 80% Gotland x BFL wool / 20% tussah silk
  • fingering weight / 4-ply weight yarn (4/12nm)
  • aaprox 290m / 100g (317yds / 3.53oz)
  • Cool hand wash only

All yarns are hand wound by me so yardage is calculated and approximate - intended as a guide only.

As with all my hand dyed yarns and fibres, I dye them to exhaust and rinse thoroughly. There may be a small amount of free dye especially on the green/blue and saturated shades for the first few rinses.

Needle size dependant on your gauge and pattern. It is recommended that you always knit a sample swatch to determine the correct needle size for your own knitting tension as this varies from person to person.
