The Dartmoor Yarn Company
Ryeland/Shetland hand dyed - 4 ply
This beautifully soft 4ply is a blend of Ryeland wool from sheep that graze on Dartmoor National Park at Walkhampton and from Shetlands that live just outside the national park at Milton Abbot.
The high quality Shetland fleeces gives a soft silkiness, while the Ryeland helps reduce felting and increases the yarn’s ability to hold textured stitches and retain shape on washing and wearing. The overall result is a soft, but resilient yarn ideal for both garments and socks without nylon.
The Dartmoor Yarn Company aims to help others learn about and develop a love for knitting and of British breed wool and share their passion for the beautiful place they call home.
