A beautiful blend of 3 local fibres. The Exmoor Blueface is our local sheep and brings its wonderful springy nature, the Bluefaced Leicester lends it’s outstandingly soft handle and lustre to the yarn, whilst the Wensleydale adds its qualities of a beautiful golden sheen and fineness of fibre.

Each shade is inspired by the work of French tapestry artist Jean Lurcat and have been blended to create beautiful deep, mottled hues spun into a 4-ply and a DK. We also offer unspun tops of this yarn on our website.
