FLEECE & NATURAL FIBRES
Our rare breed Teeswater fleeces come from Maria and John's own Lake District flock and the Bluefaced Leicester fleeces from Maria and John's own flock combined with some of their neighbours flock who are a couple of miles down the road.
- Fleece scoured in the UK
- Processed into yarn in the UK
For this yarn we worked with a highly regarded British spinner based in Huddersfield to create a beautiful quality yarn from field to yarn in under 100 miles. This mill shares our regenerative business values.
- Hand wash only - we recommend a wool wash
- Air dry flat to keep shape
