Beautiful rare breed Border Leicester yarn is produced from our 300 + pedigree flock of Border Leicesters from our farm, here in North Yorkshire. All of our sheep live to grow old.

After shearing the fleeces are handpicked before we transport them across to Bradford where they are washed, combed and worsted spun into 100 gm skeins.

They produce the most fantastic worsted spun yarn, which has such a great handle, and gives amazing stitch definition and drape.

A 100% pure British product, in fact a 100% Yorkshire product, and a wonderful yarn for your special project

Washing care: Pure 100% wool- hand wash and dry flat.

Shipping costs depend on the location and the size of the package. Please email me for shipping costs. The shipping cost quoted is an estimate and the actual cost will be emailed before shipping.

Fantastic purchase and very quickly sent. The fibre is a joy to spin, it dyes well too. The resulting yarn is a lovely, soft, woolly yarn. I'm finding the fibre to be very versatile, it's already become a firm favourite.
The seller is extremely friendly and very helpful too.
Thank you so much !!!
