The Daughter of a Shepherd journey began with the 2015 clip of the Hebridean sheep who graze Escrick Park Estate, shepherded by Rachel Atkinson's Father, John Atkinson.
With a firm commitment to using only 100% British wool from shepherds and producers within the United Kingdom, she aims to support all aspects of British manufacturing in the processing and production.
The overall colour is a complex dark pitch brown with a reddish tint which becomes becomes silvery grey or tan in different lights. A soft handle produces a fabric with bounce and structure when knitted. The yarn retains its original signature scent of the fields, flock and new lambs in straw-filled barns and I am thrilled to bits with it!
The Hebridean fleece is from the original 23rd July 2015 Escrick Park Estate clip and the Zwartbles comes from Exmoor, not far from the mill where the yarn is spun.
