A repeat of the popular Crossbreed Blend with beautiful fleece from several cross-breed ewes – Bluefaced Leicester, Cheviot and Cotswold mixed breeds). The resulting yarn picks up slight drape and sheen from the longwool ancestry, softness from BFL genes and a bounce and lightness from the Cheviot influence. It is a light DK weight and is lovely to knit with. The 2019 version of Cross Breed Blend has a beautiful natural grey shade but is otherwise similar to the 2017 and 2018 versions.

Nat Raedwulf of Wolf and Faun Knits designed her beautiful Tearmann Shawl with three skeins of Crossbreed Blend (from the 2018 batch – the 2019 batch is very similar and has the same m/100g). These sets are perfect for this lovely shawl and give several colour options, including the original Autumn Gold and Natural Grey. Nat’s test knitters have used a variety of colours which helps give a feel for how the shawl looks in alternate colours. If you look here you can see the various colours knit to date, including some blue and grey shawls similar to the indigo sets I have prepared.

It has been expertly spun by The Border Mill and the wool comes from Culgowrie Flock.

  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.
