This beautiful yarn is a gorgeous nutty brown colour that comes from mixing Castlemilk Moorit fleece with coloured Ryeland fleece. The Castlemilk was sourced from Stonehouse Farm in upper Dentdale; the Ryeland came from a farm at Stainmore, northeast of Kirkby Stephen.
This yarn is the thickest I have produced to-date. A hearty 2/7nm count gives approximately 3500m per kg. It is worsted spun so makes for a strong yarn which would work well as a warp but so far I’ve used it only as a weft combined with my BFL 12s in the warp. This combination produced a lovely fabric with body but not too firm. A looser sett will produce a beautiful blanket weight, a slightly tighter sett will be good for cushions. What will you weave with it?!
