As part of the Daughter of a Shepherd range which celebrates individual British breeds, we are thrilled to be able to stock a limited edition, 100% Hebridean lace weight yarn.
Woollen spun as a single ply, the Hebridean fleece is the colour of the bitterest of bittersweet chocolate - a deep dark pitch brown - very close to black and is shot through with natural silver fibres which give it light and movement.
The handle is crunchy, but once blocked the fabric becomes light, airy and softer, while still retaining it's shape making it perfect for lace knitting and open crochet work.
Due to the flexibility of the yarn to work within a vast range of tension (gauge) measurements, we have left this information blank. As with all lace weight yarns, you can use a smaller needle or hook to produce a tight fabric, or work with a larger tool for more open stitches and a lacier finish.
We also stock Daughter of a Shepherd DK, Brume DK and Castlemilk Moorit DK and Daughter of a Shepherd Heritage 4 ply
Rachel's passion for the importance of provenance, collaborating with both shepherds, mills, designers and weavers has been a wonder to watch unfold over the last few years. We love her, her yarn and her story. See more of her story on our youtube channel as well as our Instagram TV channel.
