Harvest Hues Yarn is a blend of local Devon farmed Zwartbles and lustrous Bluefaced Leicester mixed with soft as a cloud Falklands Merino.
The Zwartbles sheep is naturally dark brown and when blended with our pre-dyed Bluefaced Leicester and Merino colours, it transforms the fibre into deep, mottled shades. When preparing these tops the fibres are combed in one direction, accentuating a blendís softness, shine and strength. The elegant Merino, bouncy Zwartbles and glowing BFL complement each other perfectly, giving the tops and yarn a delicate woolly halo, impeccable drape and full-bodied texture. Wonderful!
This yarn gives a drapier fabric, and is perfect for everything from sock, shawls and garments. Cables and texture, here we come.
