Yeavering Bell – Double Knit (full skein)

(1 customer review)

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.

Yeavering Bell DK is perfect for cardigans such as our Cockle Shell and jerseys such as our Spin Me Round and even delicate lacework and cables as on our Lindisfarne Scarf.

Remember all our patterns are FREE with the yarn to knit them.  If you would like a pattern then please order it and its yarn though the ‘design’ pages.

    This has to be my favourite yarn of all time. Sleek and shiny, but with a bit of bounce and a lovely handle. The small amount of fine pile hazing over the garment adds a touch of class. I’ve recently used it for a Knits About Winter garment (Eastwind Jacket) that calls for a lace-weight held together with a mohair. I used Yeavering Bell and it is perfect!
