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 19th July 2017 Escrick Park Estate clip and the Zwartbles comes from Exmoor, not far from the mill where the yarn is spun.
2017 was an especially fine clip for the Escrick Park Estate flock, yielding a good staple length resulting in yarn with lustre and a beautiful drape
