Awesome Aran is exceptional in every way. Spun from the only finest fleece that the Bluefaced Leicester sheep produces, it’s the absolute best of British. It has the softness and bounce you’d associate with merino. It’s a great all-rounder, perfect for hats, scarves and warm sweaters (including the classic cabled Aran).
Bluefaced Leicester is a native British sheep breed. Its fleece has a subtle lustre, unique to the breed, which adds an exceptional depth of colour to our hand-dyed shades. Its long staple length makes it hard-wearing, and being a superwash yarn, it’s easy to care for too.
It’s now available as an undyed yarn by the skein for you to dye yourself, or use as a contrast with our range of hand dyed shades. It absorbs dye brilliantly and there is no danger of felting.
