This artisanal yarn has been blended and spun exclusively for Susan Crawford at a local mill, using a unique blend of Jacobs and white and black Shetland fleeces, to create a delightfully lofty, soft, grey yarn displaying the characteristics of sheep from Monkley Ghyll and nearby farms. The yarn has been worsted spun for added smoothness, softness and longevity but retains a wonderful plumpness making the yarn warm and cocooning.
With Monkley Ghyll Farm yarns, Susan's goal is to showcase the native sheep breeds living on the moors, fells and hills of Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire, sourcing fibre from local farmers, as well as utilizing the fleeces from the sheep living at Monkley Ghyll Farm itself. Barn is the first in a range of yarns blended and spun to her specifications. A new generation of knitters and crocheters will enjoy these wools from the heart of the British countryside.
