Ignite your creativity with a new 100% pure British Wool. WYS are always experimenting with blends, breeds, spinning & colour techniques. This season they were given the opportunity to work with a new breed of sheep. The wool used in Re:treat is a mixture breed of Bluefaced Leicester - the most influential breed in British hand knitting & Kerry Hill - famously recognised for its distinctive markings. BFL produces a soft, lustrous wool whilst Kerry Hill has a short fibred, clean white fleece. Combine these characteristics and West Yorkshire Spinners have produced a soft yet durable hand knitting yarn which is perfect for numerous crafts including knitting, felting and weaving. A roving texture with a soft twist glides off the needles to create a smooth, light fabric of pure wool.
