Description

Have you ever heard of fractal yarns? They are spun in a way that creates a pre-thought colour sequence: one ply is spun in a certain (long) sequence and the other repeats it, but in shorter colour repeats.
This results in the same colours meeting in certain parts intentionally, producing a beautiful optical effect that you’ll show off in your finished project.

Dorset Horn wool comes from a rare sheep breed. It is not as soft as Merino, but still wonderful to knit with. This wool has not been superwash treated and will, therefore, felt if water and friction are applied, as well as keep the breed’s natural woolly charm.

Technical info:

  • 400 yards/365 meters approx.
  • Worsted weight
  • 2-ply, fractal spun (read description above)
  • Hand spun from Dorset Horn wool top

Hand spun yarns are full of character. They have variable textures throughout the thread because they are 100% made by human hands and, therefore, their weight (“thickness”) can vary a little or a lot, depending on the spinner’s intention.

When crafting with handspun, you are picking up the spinner’s work, continuing the fibre’s journey, and making it your own.

Be a part of this amazing handmade artistry.

Please be aware product colours may vary according to different screen settings.
