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!
