Description

Norfolk Horn 4-ply yarn made from pure norfolk wool.

Our Norfolk Horn 4-ply yarn is produced in small batches once a year.  Each year will be different.  Which makes it extremely rare and limited edition. When its gone its gone!  This is our first yarn produced from our first clip in 2017.

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 the first edition 2017 came from Elsing Orchard Flock and Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum of Rural Life.

We carefully selected the best fleece.  This was taken to the Natural Fibre Company in Cornwall and spun in to this beautiful bouncy wool yarn.
