100% Organic North Ronaldsay Wool, Single Flock
These famously hardy sheep produce a wonderful double-coated fleece. Unlike most North Ronaldsay yarns, we decided against de-hairing to remove the longer guard hairs - after all, they tell the story of the breed's heritage. These coarser hairs will gradually work their way out as you use, wash and wear the yarn, leaving behind a surprisingly soft and airy fabric.
We sourced the fleece for Croft from a small farm in Wiltshire, now no longer operating. As a result, we don't know if this is one we can spin again - so grab it while you can.
The stunning depth within the shade is achieved by blending together the fleeces from across the flock. From pale, pebble grey to almost black, the wonderful heathering brightens any garment.
