Wensleydale Longwool DK 100g

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.  The yarn made from Wensleydale sheep 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.

The DK weight of Wensleydale Longwool is a fine DK that knits up to a light, airy fabric, and can also be used for sport weight patterns.
