Cross-breed Blend is a real mix and will have to be referred to as Cross-breed Blend for simplicity. It is a blend of three cross-breed ewe fleeces – Bluefaced Leicester and Cheviot, Lincoln and Cheviot, and Lincoln and Hampshire. The fleeces were all lovely and I felt they would blend well together – the resulting yarn picks up drape and sheen from the longwool ancestry, softness from the Hampshire genes and a bounce and lightness from the Cheviot influence. It is approximately DK weight and is going to be so good to knit with.
Naturally Dyed Cross-breed Blend DK
The fleeces that make up this Cross-breed Blend were all beautiful in their own right and, in combination, give a soft, slightly lustrous and drapey wool. The naturally dyed shades on this yarn have a lovely soft tone.
