Barn DK from Susan Crawford's A Room of My Own line is a non-superwash DK weight yarn. This artisanal yarn has been blended and spun exclusively for Susan at a local mill, using a unique blend of Jacobs and white and black Shetland fleeces. The result is 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 A Room of My Own 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, and to use the fleeces from the sheep raised at Monkley Ghyll Farm, where Susan and her family live. 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.
