Daughter of a Shepherd - 5th Anniversary Hebredian DK
Daughter of Shepherd - Special 5th Anniversary Hebredian DK
We are thrilled to have a small batch of Rachel’s limited-edition spin recreating Daughter of a Shepherd’s very first yarn, to celebrate the Daughter of a Shepherd's 5th Anniversary.
Grade 1 Hebridean fibre from the North of England is gently processed in Yorkshire and worsted spun as a 3ply by John Arbon Textiles in Devon. The overall colour is a complex and natural, dark pitch brown with a reddish tint that becomes silvery grey or tan in different lights. A soft handle produces a fabric with bounce and structure when knitted. The yarn retains its original (and famous) signature scent of the fields, flock and new lambs in straw-filled barns.
Note: This yarn does not have a secondary scour after spinning so we recommend you wash swatches and allow the yarn to bloom to obtain an accurate gauge.
