I hand-dyed and spun this bouncy yarn on my vintage spinning wheel. It is made from the wool of a Texel sheep (for a picture please see last photo).

These sheep were named after the island of Texel, off the coast of the Netherlands where the native sheep were crossed with Lincoln and Liecester Longwools to develop the modern day Texel.

Textels produce a nice, matte, white fleece that can be used for everyday textiles - including socks, gloves, mittens or a hat, however I would not recommend it for next-to-the-skin use such as in scarves as it has what I would class as "medium" softness. This also means that the item will be more durable than one made from a very soft wool, such as merino and will wear well.

The yarn was spun with thicker and thinner areas, but overall this is a DK weight yarn.

This yarn has very nice elasticity, so the fabric will hold its shape. It can also be felted.

Yarn Stats:

Weight: 52g/1.8oz
WPI: approx 10
Length: 86m/94yd
Thickness: DK
Softness: medium

I can wind this yarn into a center-pull ball for your convenience, please feel free to ask!

This yarn comes beautifully gift wrapped.

Please keep in mind that all computer monitors display colours slightly differently.
