Daughter of a Shepherd Heritage DK


Daughter of a Shepherd. Limited Edition.
With a soft halo and sturdy structure and 100% British this great Limited Edition yarn has a nice bounce and great depth.
Fleeces grown, scoured and spun in the UK

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



Rachel's passion for the importance of provenance, collaborating with both shepherds, mills, designers and weavers has been a wonder to watch unfold over the last few years. We love her, her yarn and her story. See more of her story on our youtube channel as well as our Instagram TV channel.
