The Bluefaced Leicester comes from two flocks here on the Black Isle – Wester Raddery and Craiglands are each just a handful of miles from my home in Fortrose. These two flocks of majestic-looking Bluefaced Leicesters produce typically fine, silky and lustrous fleeces. The Suri Alpaca used in this blend is sourced from a small flock in the north of England. The natural silver is a blend of several undyed shades, giving a heathery depth to the silver grey colour. There is also a natural white version which takes natural dyes beautifully.
This special luxury yarn was beautifully spun by The Border Mill in the Scottish Borders.
