Northern Yarn DK: A blend of Lancastrian Poll Dorset & Bluefaced Leicester shearling wool, woollen spun in Yorkshire.
The sheep live out in the Quernmore countryside and are well looked after. Poll Dorset is one of the only breeds that can lamb all year round - which is good news for me as I get to see the lambs early!
This wool has excellent character, bouncy with a slight crunch. Rather lofty and plump.
