The Zwartbles comes from ‘Hedgefield Zwartbles’ which is the show name for Jim and Linda’s award winning flock. The flock is based on the edge of the small town of Beauly – set at the head of the Beauly Firth (just a few miles inland from the Black Isle).  Jim clips his best youngsters early ready for the coming show season and these ‘shearling’ fleeces are used in this yarn.  The wool has a softer handle than that of mature Zwartbles and the fleece is a beautiful rich bitter chocolate brown with less of the bleaching that comes in with age. The Bluefaced Leicester used in this blend is British.

This yarn has been beautifully spun by The Border Mill in the Scottish Borders and has a soft, plump handle.

  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.
