Blacker have created another stunning one off birthday yarn. Brushwork is truly a one of a kind yarn being a blend of Scottish Bowmont, Castlemilk Moorit and Alpaca.
Scottish Bowmont sheep are renowned for their very fine fibre which is why the majority of their fleece goes into luxary garment manufacture.
Castlemilk Moorit are listed as 'at risk' with the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. Their plump and bouncy brown fleece adds depth and texture to the Scottish Bowmont.
These two fleeces are then blended with British Alpaca to create a soft yarn with a lovely drape.
To make the yarn even more special and unique the fibre was dyed in the wool before spinning. The shades are then blended as little as possible to preserve the small nups of the individual shades in the yarn.
