Low Mileage Wool - Gotland/BFL X - Marled DK - 2ply
This beautiful DK spun yarn is sourced from a single flock in Caroline, Alberta.
The Shepherdess is a friend going a few years back. I have since hand processed and spun multiple fleeces from the same flock. I use the fibres for blending in batts which I often offer here at Crux.
This is a 2ply constructed yarn with a low twist to ensure the yarn is airy and workable. Gotland and BFL are known as a longwools and their characteristics inhibit strength, lustre and a halo. The Gotland wool yields less crimp which results in a yarn with drape.
Milled at Rosebud River Fibre Mill in Alberta, in 2022 with both 2021 and 2022 clips from Crocus Country Shepherdess
