Portland/Manx Loaghtan DK - Light Beige - 100% Pure New Wool - Approx 100m per 50grms

This classic yarn has been spun at an organically registered mill in England using fleeces from selected pedigree Portland sheep and Manx Loaghtan sheep which graze at a National Trust site in Cambridgeshire.  The off white Portland sheep fleeces were blended with Mid  Brown Manx loaghtan fleeces at the mill prior to spinning and the small flecks of brown wool can be seen in the finished yarn.  It knits up well using size 4.5mm - 4mm (UK 7 & 8) needles) with an average tension of 19-20 sts to 10cm.  Ideal for sweaters, cushions etc. Gives good stitch definition for cable patterns.  Hand wash only
