Really pleased with yarn, colours just as shown on website. Feels lovely to knit with, feels as if it will be strong and hard wearing.
Wensleydale Gems Collection - 100% Wensleydale DK
The Wensleydale Gems Collection is a stunning range of 100% Wensleydale Fleece in 20 striking shades.
Wensleydale is the perfect fleece for dyeing, this is because of the lustre and shine of the fibre. The dyeware accentuates this natural effect giving a beautiful sheen, allowing West Yorkshire Spinners to produce stunning shades.
West Yorkshire Spinners have named this new colour collection ‘Gems’ as the shades gleam like precious stones. This yarn is also available in the ecru shade which is suitable for hand dyeing (£6.50 a skein).
