Orkney’s native sheep, known as the North Ronaldsay breed, have been grazing seaweed on these islands for 6000 years. We hand-shear our sheep to ensure that the new wool growth remains to keep the ewe warm. Many of the wool fibres are finer than Merino and this makes for a beautiful yarn to knit and wear. Our Double Knitting weight yarn is hand clipped and comes in Seal grey, Slate grey, Shell-sand and Peat black.This yarn is 100% un-dyed wool fibres. Each ball is 132 yards and 50g.
