The Zwartbles sheep originates from Holland but is now widely farmed across Exmoor and the fibre, once shorn, is graded at our local British Wool grading station. It is naturally dark brown and John has created a tonal range by adding another local white sheep breed, the Exmoor Blueface, as a blend. Once spun the Zwartbles produces a beautiful, voluminous, bouncy yarn.
