Our Exelana is a high quality 100% British yarn spun from our local North Devon sheep, the Exmoor Blueface (a cross of the Exmoor Horn and Bluefaced Leicester).
It has been developed by John Arbon and spun into a fine hand knit yarn in 4 ply and double knit. Excelana was designed to complement knitwear designer Susan Crawford’s vintage knitting patterns. Her latest book, A Stitch in Time Vol 2, features Excelana in many of its patterns. It is dyed in a range of 8 shades creating a palette that perfectly suits Susan’s stunning knitting patterns.
Machine washable at 30 degrees on wool/silk cycle (no spin).
Composition: 70% Exmoor Blueface, 30% Bluefaced Leicester.
