Heritage 4-ply (fingering) - Daughter of a Shepherd

Regular price $39.00

Farm to Cable Yarns is now carrying Daughter of a Shepherd’s Heritage 4 ply, a beautiful mix of Hebridean and Zwartbles breeds.

The overall colour is a complex and natural black with shifting colours of rich brown shot through with silver grey fibres. A soft handle produces knitted fabric with bounce and structure. The yarn retains its original (and famous) signature scent of the fields, flock and new lambs in straw-filled barns.

Spun in Devon by John Arbon Textiles, the Grade 1, fine Hebridean fleece comes from a 2019 clip sourced in the North of England having an excellent staple length for yarn with lustre and a soft halo. The Zwartbles fibre it is blended with originates on Exmoor not far from the mill.
