Yeavering Bell – Aran (full skein)
A soft and gleaming worsted spun yarn from our own Angora Goats and Wensleydale Sheep.
80% Whistlebare’s Own Mohair, 20% Whistlebare’s Own Wensleydale.
Yeavering Bell is spun from mohair from our herd of angora goats and Wensleydale wool from our own sheep. Both of these fleeces are long staple and high lustre and they blend together perfectly. The yarn is worsted spun to accentuate the lustrous and luxurious nature of the fibres which dye beautifully. Garments knitted from Yeavering Bell have a beautiful natural drape, and with care will last forever.
