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.
Black & Blue Welsh Wool is our very own-produced yarn, 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 yarn itself is a solid DK weight of a 3-plied construction, making for a round yarn with plenty of stitch definition.

Slate is a dark grey with a slight hint of purple, a great dark neutral to contrast against our brighter colours, or the lighter, undyed grey.
