Norfolk Horn natural DK weight yarn produced from 100% Norfolk Horn grown in Norfolk
Our Norfolk Horn yarn is produced in small batches once a year. Each year will be different. Which is what makes it limited edition. and extremely rare When its gone its gone! This is our second yarn produced from the 2018 clip.
Squishy, sheepy, bouncy and soft. The colour is of pale oatmeal peppered with chocolatey flecks that is a signature of the Norfolk Horn. Woollen spun with a soft handle the yarn produces a knitted fabric with bounce and good memory. The yarn retains the pearlescent semi-lustre typical of the Norfolk Horn giving it a pearly sheen and a good stitched definition in plain, cabled and eyelet lace knitting.
The fleece for our limited edition 100% Norfolk Horn yarn is sourced from small flocks in Norfolk. The fleece for this second edition 2018 came from Elsing Orchard Flock, the narborough flock, and Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum of Rural Life.
We carefully select the best fleece which is wollen spun in Yorkshire.
