Wensleydale is one of the lustre breeds of sheep with long, curly locks, and is an endangered breed. This 100% Wensleydale Wool yarn, made from British fleeces, has a fabulous sheen and the ability to take dye exceptionally well. Hand dyed/painted, it is a slightly thicker than standard 4-ply (350m per 100g). Although not quite as soft as Blue Faced Leicester or Merino, it is perfect for warm outer wear. We are offering this yarn in single skeins, as well as project packs of three or more skeins which will attract a small discount on the single skein price.
