Extremely rare limited edition Norfolk Horn yarn (2017 clip).

Squishy, sheepy, bouncy and soft. The colour is of pale oatmeal peppered with chocolatey flecks that is a signature of the Norfolk Horn. Woollen spun with a soft handle the yarn produces a knitted fabric with bounce and good memory. The yarn retains the semi-lustre of the Norfolk giving it a pearly sheen and a good stitched definition in plain, cabled and eyelet lace knitting.

The fleece for the limited edition 100% Norfolk Horn yarn was sourced from small flocks in Norfolk. The fleece for the first edition 2017 came from Elsing Orchard Flock and Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum of Rural Life.
