Knitting yarn from the Yorkshire Wolds!
This range of yarns has been developed by Kath and Katie Foster, a mother and daughter venture combing a love of fibre and colour. We have a range of hand-dyed Blue Faced Leicester with 25% nylon and various weights spun from the fleece of our own flock of Suffolk X sheep, some of which are blended with Alpaca for that added luxury!.
The BFL with nylon is a 100g skein of standard 4ply, perfect for socks, scarves, hats and more. Most of our BFL are hand dyed and hand painted one offs and can be found in our new for 2017 'Ewe One and Only' range.
The 'Ewe One and Only' range also includes a selection of our DK weight 50% Suffolk X with 50% Alpaca. A standard DK weight yarn in a 100g skein, a fabulous blend with strength from the Suffolk and luxury from the Alpaca. Perfect for small accessory projects, including hats, gloves, mittens, wellie toppers and more.
For larger projects requiring more than a 'one off', I can highly recommend our balled range of Aran weigh Suffolk X with 50% Alpaca and our 100% Suffolk X range. Again, the 50% Suffolk X with Alpaca gives the same strenth and luxury as its DK weight family member and the 100% Suffolk X is perfect for those traditional Aran knits that demand a strong wool.
We also have a fabulous rustic charmed natural brown DK weight Suffolk X with Alpaca available in 100g skeins. This beautifully marled yarn is a blend of 50% natural ivory Suffolk X with 50% chocolate Alpaca, giving the yarn a stunning depth and luxurious halo.
