Blacker Lyonesse DK British Wool is a blend of soft Falkland Corriedale / Merino and natural linen. This combination of linen and wool creates a light summery yarn perfect for cardigans and shawls. It is worsted spun and has excellent stitch definition. It also blocks brilliantly.
This first batch is made using Corriedale wool. Subsequent batches may include Falklands Merino depending on the availability of Corriedale.
