Woodnote’s blend of wool from three different sheep breeds creates a springy yarn with all of the best characteristics of wool. Bluefaced Leicester provides luster, drape, and durability; Masham provides a hint of sheen and loftiness; and Merino provides luxurious softness. This luxury British breed blend is a staple yarn in any stash, with each shade inspired by English woodland. This soft yarn is comfortably worn next to the skin, making it ideal for sweaters, scarves, and hats.

Bluefaced Leicester: Evolved during the last century in the Tyne & Wear Valleys and the hills of east Cumbria, this breed produces fine, long-staple wool that is known for its softness and luster. As well as being soft, this fiber also holds the strength needed to create long-lasting garments that can be treasured over time. With a broad muzzle and tightly curled, semi-lustrous wool, it is the dark blue skin on the sheep’s head that gave the breed its name.

Masham: Produced by crossing a Teeswater or Wensleydale ram with a Northern hill ewe such as the Swaledale or Dalesbred, this hardy sheep produces a soft, demi-luster fleece.

Merino: Developed in Spain, Merino sheep are world famous for having one of the highest quality fleece of any breed of sheep. The short and fine fibers used in Merino yarn create a luxurious and soft texture that has all the resilience needed to create a long-lasting piece of knitwear.

Please Note: The crocheted gauge was calculated by our staff and is only an estimation. There is no printed crochet gauge on the yarn labels.
