Naturally Dyed Longwool Blend 4 ply

The natural lustre and halo of this Longwool Blend lends itself very well to dyeing and the colours have a real shimmer and depth to them.  I have really enjoyed dyeing these shades and am sure they will knit into beautifully special projects

This yarn is a blend of two different longwools – 2/3 Cotswold and 1/3 Wensleydale – it is drapey, lustrous and has a wonderful halo.  Longwool Blend is approximately 4 ply/Sport Weight and has been expertly spun by The Border Mill.

The wool comes from Orrinside Flock, a very eclectic group of sheep.  Jane has been really enthusiastic about seeing her flock’s wool turned into yarn and I think this is influencing her choices when she’s thinking about buying new stock.  Earlier this year I had an excited message telling me that she had bought a couple of Cotswold ewes and a Wensleydale tup………..and, now, here is their wool spun up as yarn!

  1. Black Isle Yarns are gently and minimally processed by The Border Mill from real animals who enjoy an outdoor life (in beautiful surroundings, lucky beasts!) – consequently you may find the odd bit of vegetation in your yarn, these are easy to remove as you knit and, if you’re lucky enough to find some, I hope will remind you of the special animals who have grown your yarn!
  2. I do my best to show the yarn colours as accurately as possible but please be aware that colours do vary from monitor to monitor
  3. Your yarn should be gently hand washed in cool water using pH neutral wool wash such as Eucalan or Soak. This may seem time consuming at first but should soon become an enjoyable part of working with a gently treated natural product.
  4. All my dyed colours have been thoroughly washed and rinsed however there may be a slight release of residual colour on washing – this shouldn’t change the overall yarn colour or alter other colours.
