NA­TIVE BREEDS

The Knitter - - The Knitter Loves... -

Fine Fet­tle Fi­bres, the Northum­ber­land yarn shop, has teamed up with lo­cal con­ser­va­tion graz­ing project Flex­i­graze to of­fer yarns pro­duced from its na­tive-breed sheep. Manx Loagh­tan and He­bridean sheep are used to main­tain grass­land and heath­land habi­tats, and now their fleeces are be­ing spun at Hal­i­fax Mill into aran-weight yarns for hand­knit­ting. Each undyed, 100g skein is £14.
