Wensleydale Longwool 4 Ply 50g
The Wensleydale sheep comes from the valley of the same name in North Yorkshire. These very distinctive animals are longwool sheep with lustrous, ringleted fleeces that can reach almost to the ground in unshorn animals. This worsted-spun yarn, made from 100% Wensleydale sheep fleece, has an almost silk-like sheen and a gentle halo. A luxurious and soft yarn, it is considered to be the finest and most beautiful longwool in the world.
