Leto is 100% North Ronaldsay wool in a heavy lace weight. It's truly rustic so if you like your yarn soft then this one is not for you. But! If you love a really sheepy yarn and love the feel of rustic yarn in your hands then this wool will transport you to the wild Orkney coastline where the sheep graze by the sea. Your inner-yarn-explorer will be rewarded with not only a great knitting experience, but a beautiful finished object because Leto blocks like a dream and holds its shape making it perfect for lacy shawls. And just look at how it takes the color!
These skeins are from Zoe at The Queen of Purls shop in Salthill, Glasgow who dyed them to order for The Woolly Thistle. There are only 4 skeins of each color - correction, there are only 3 skeins of each color, as I rather fancy one of each for myself! These are special, Scottish, and reasonably priced.
