Norfolk Horn DK 50 grms Off White - 100% Pure New British Wool
This yarn has been spun by the Natural Fibre Company in Cornwall using selected fleeces from pedigree Norfolk Horn sheep that graze on conservation grade land at Wimpole Hall, a National Trust site in Cambridgeshire. Norfolk Horn fleeces have fine black fibres running throughout and these remain in the yarn giving it a textured look when used for sweaters, cushions etc. Photos 3, 4 & 5 show examples of cushions and a bag that can be knitted using this yarn - kits are available elsewhere in this shop. The yarn knits up well using size 4.5mm - 4mm (UK 7 & 8) needles). Average tension: 19 -20 sts to 10cm. It also takes dye very well so can be used for home dyeing projects.
Please Note: This yarn is also available in 75grm and 100grm hanks priced £7.25 and £9.50. The 75grm hanks are ideal for hats, mittens etc. Please choose the total weight you require from the drop down box and adjust the number of hanks you require for quantities of 100grms or more. Orders for 100 grms and above will be supplied in primarily in 100grm hanks. All images of yarn show a 100 grm hank.
In order to keep your yarn looking nice, always wash gently by hand using warm water and wool wash liquid. Do not rub or use agitation. Rinse in same temperature water then squeeze out excess water by rolling in a towel. Dry flat away from direct heat.
