Brand new to The Woolly Thistle is Blacker's Gotland DK. This special yarn is described by Blacker as follows:
"Gotland is the ideal fiber for those crisp autumnal days, when the dark seems to be drawing in a little more with each coming night. As knitters, this is our favourite season of the year - it is just brimming with potential! Our new Gotland colour palette is full of moody blues and rich golds and browns, so you're sure to find a combination which makes you long for those colder nights in front of the fire.
With a crisp handle, warm halo and slight luster, this glorious yarn encapsulates rustic British breeds at their best.
Gotland sheep produce very fine and particularly warm wool in shades from silver to charcoal. The yarn is remarkably light when made up, has a wonderful luster and takes dye beautifully. Founder of the company, Sue Blacker, owns a flock of Gotland sheep and every batch of our Gotland yarn includes a small amount from Sue’s Cornish flock. Gotland sheep - like the fiber - are rather special! Sue believes that they are 'an extremely intelligent sheep, with a sense of humour and mischief.'"
