Brume DK - Daughter of a Shepherd

Regular price $39.00

Brume DK is the misty, silvery version of Daughter of a Shepherd’s original Hebridean/Zwartbles yarn. The natural white of the Exmoor Blueface enhances the silver tones found in the Hebridean to create a shade with lots of movement. A soft handle produces a fabric with bounce and a lovely drape. 

The Hebridean fleece used in Brume was clipped on 24th June 2016 at Escrick Park Estate and both the Zwartbles and Exmoor Blueface are sourced locally to the mill in Devon.
