2022 BATCH is now in!
PLEASE NOTE: we have a certain number of individual hanks in stock ready to ship, but larger quantities may need to be dyed to order. Please allow one week for this. The maximum number of hanks we can dye in one lot is 9.
We are very proud of this little yarn of ours and delighted to be able to bring it back with the help of the most amazing fund raising support.
Black & Blue Welsh Wool is spun from a single flock of sheep in North Wales. Mr Owen has carefully chosen a blend of his prize-winning white and black Bluefaced Leicesters for us, and it has been expertly spun by a mill in West Wales. It is then hand dyed by ourselves here in Scotland.
The result is a wonderfully soft and bouncy yarn in a gentle grey shade with plenty of life and depth. It has the lustre and softness typical of Bluefaced Leicester wool, but without quite losing its woolly character.
The 2020 batch is a little different from previous years as it is now of a 3-plied construction rather than just 2, making it a rounder and more durable yarn.
210m - 100gr
100% Welsh Wool
Captain's Coat is a dark stormy blue with flashes of navy.
Please note that depending on available dye lots, we may need to dye a fresh batch to accommodate multiple hanks in the same order, so you may need to allow up to a week for dispatch.
