Yeavering Bell 4ply

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.
