100% British wool grown, gathered, and spun with 100% traceability
Daughter of a Shepherd: Rachel Atkinson launched her first yarn back in 2016 - with Hebridean fleece from the flock shepherded by her father on the Escrick Park Estate. A beautiful yarn made extra special because of its story and provenance.
Rachel then went to produce other gorgeous blends, always with a commitment to using 100% British Wool. I'm so happy to be able to stock this wool.

"Ram Jam encompasses everything Daughter of a Shepherd set out to do and be; that of wanting to put value into something otherwise considered worthless."
Ram Jam is woollen spun as a 2ply yarn to a worsted weight with 115 metres (126 yards) on each 50g skein. It is light and bouncy to handle, with good stitch definition, a soft halo and lots of character.
