From fleece to finished yarn in less than 50 miles, Wool Local is both authentically British and environmentally sustainable. Starting at the British wool auction in Bradford, the wool is scoured, combed, spun, dyed, steamed and hanked in the county of Yorkshire. An intimate blend (50%/50%) of luxurious Bluefaced Leicester and hardwearing Masham, in a fine 4ply weight, this is a truly local wool, with its roots in the heartland of British textile manufacturing.
