This yarn had been grown with love and care by the award winning Pedigree Poll Dorset sheep of the Kennixton Flock from the Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales, UK.
Poll Dorset Sheep are a British native breed named after the county of their origin, Dorset in South West England.
This small flock of sheep is full of characters who are special in every way and the quality of their lives is reflected in the quality of the wool they grow.
Wool from the Poll Dorset is a superior natural fibre, thanks to a special combination of bulk, resilience, softness and warmth. It is free from kemp and grey fibres it is remarkably white and ideal for dying.
Be part of the flock by having some Poll Dorset Yarn of your own and enjoy the heritage and warmth of wearing British Wool.
You can visit us at www.kennixtonsheep.co.uk and follow us on twitter @kennixtonsheep.
Join us as we shepherd our way through the seasons and discover the story of how wool gets from ewe to you.
This wool is 100% as nature intended - hand wash only
I am happy to ship world-wide please contact me with details.
This really wonderful skein of Poll Dorset yarn arrived in excellent time and excellent condition. It is very beautifully spun and so soft !
I am so grateful to have this yarn and I thank you for making it available. I am knitting a patchwork quilt with squares from different breeds of British Sheep and it was a real happy find for me when I found your shop and this lovely yarn.
Best of success to you in this work which is so valued !
