This beautiful yarn was hand spun and hand dyed by Suzie in East London.

Wensleydale is a traditional British sheep breed that’s fleece has a unique drape and glossy sheen quite unlike regular wool, thanks to the its distinctive curly, lustrous locks that you can see in the photo of a prize-winning Wensleydale in 1904.

The Wensleydale lustre gives the colour an inimitable depth and intensity.

It’s spun thick-and-thin, roughly aran weight. We recommended you swatch to find the right tension, because of the unusual Wensleydale fibre characteristics.

This very special skein is non-repeatable.

  • 100% British Wensleydale wool
  • 96g, 86 meters (93 yards)
  • Approximately aran/heavy worsted weight
  • 5mm needles recommended
  • Hand wash only

This is a handmade one-off.
