The beautiful Jennett has been transformed by RiverKnits! I was very excited when Becci agreed to hand dye a limited number in 2 exclusive colour ways for our 3rd birthday. After lots of chatting I left the colours in the expert hands of Becci who used Lancashire's wild countryside for inspiration - meet "The Moor' & 'The Merrier' I'm so happy with them - vibrant, fresh and happy. 

A woollen spun 4 ply yarn from the fleeces of happy pedigree Poll Dorset lambs from a single farm in Quernmore, Lancaster.

We handpicked through the tufts of fleece and you can tell - the yarn is bouncy but lambswool soft.

I have named the wool after a Lancastrian hero Jennett Cragg, who travelled to London alone on horseback to rescue her orphaned grandchildren and brought them back to Quernmore. I wrote a blog post about it, the story moved me and I wanted it to be heard. A loving, strong Lancastrian - just like this yarn.
