Thick n Thin hand spun, plant dyed yarn... Nettle is the plant that gave me this colour and Beulah Speckled Face sheep gave me the fleece to spin. I help look after these lovely ewes during lambing...

The perfect day to wash/dry hand spun yarn. This lovely lot is single ply Beulah Speckled face. Super soft, whiter than most fleeces and very bouncy. A joy to spin from washed, uncarded fleece because of its 'tease a bility'
