Blacker Yarns in the UK brings you a lovely new, slightly felted tweedy yarn! This will be an occasional limited edition as the fleeces are very special: the base is a Teeswater or Romney/Shetland cross wool, very soft and lustrous and from a single farm in the Mendip Hills of Somerset, combined with a little Black Welsh Mountain wool from a small flock in Devon. These wools are blended to a subtle heathered pale grey, scoured together and then "dyed in the wool" before carding. A scattering of coloured neps (tiny balls of wool dyed in many colours) is added to the carded fibre before spinning.
This edition comes in natural grey and seven heathered shades, to reflect the moorland landscapes of the Westcountry. The neps are very subtle and some a little more pronounced, just like the wild flowers in our countryside!
