Item details

Natural and undyed DK wool available in 50 gram balls, which have 120 yards (110 metres) of yarn approximately.

The wool has been woollen spun using fleece obtained from a single registered flock in the UK. The fleece were washed, carded and spun in a small independent mill in Yorkshire, which is less than 2 miles from where I live.

I am aiming to support my local mill as much as possible and would like to make this rare, natural and beautiful yarn available to all those with an interest in using rare breed British wools in their crochet, knitting or weaving.

Use the drop down box to choose the wools you would like:
1 x 50g ball Zwartbles ( a rich very dark brown)
1 x 50g ball Hebridean (a rich very dark grey/black/brown
1 x 50g Balwen (rare breed) ( a very dark grey/black)
1 x 50g Manx Loaghtan (chestnut brown)
1 x 50g BFL cross (creamy white)
1 x 50g Masham lamsbwool (creamy white) - note this is a fingering weight, NOT DK
1 x 100g Teeswater lambswool (creamy white) - note this is a fingering weight, NOT DK

You can also buy one ball of each of the DK natural coloured wools in a small pack to try out.

A limited amount is available; the Balwen Welsh Mountain sheep is on the watchlist of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust in the UK and is classed as as a minority breed, which means there are only 1500-3000 registered breeding adult females still left in the whole of the UK. The other sheep are less rare but their fleece do not become available that often. Once these are gone, they are gone.

The wool is rustic in nature and is one of the tougher rare breed wools that I have available. It would be perfect for bags, outer garments but also mittens and leg or ankle warmers or decorative homewares.

It is not superwash treated and requires hand washing in gentle detergent and lukewarm water, gentle hand spin drying and they drying flat.

Important note about postage: I will combine postage charge you the actual postage cost for the weight purchased, plus 5% for packing and handling. In the UK, packages of up to 1kg will cost £4.00. For international customers, packages up to 250g will be £5.50, packages up to 500g will be £9.00

If you opt for tracked and signed for services with additional insurance, your parcel will be insured for its actual value. Again, the claims process can take 28 working days.
