Dovestone DK comprises 50% Bluefaced Leicester, 25% Wensleydale Longwool and 25% Dark Brown Masham. A 100g hank has approximately 230 metres and costs £14. The wool is 100% British and spun and dyed in Yorkshire.
Baa Ram Ewe says:
"By blending the fleece of the Bluefaced Leicester and Masham, along with the drape of the Wensleyale, we have created something truly special. Soft yet robust and with a lovely woolly bounciness, Dovestone is perfect for jumpers, cardigans, accessories and home items."Dovestone DK will have 11 colours in its range, all with the same names as Titus.
Carol Feller has designed seven new patterns to support Dovestone DK. Baa Ram Ewe has an Autumn/Winter look book to give a preview of the designs before publication. There are four garments and three accessories in the book. Carol says that "all are designed with unique, distinctive key features but just as importantly they can become everyday staples. I think knits should be for everyday use, not special occasions."
It's great to see the launch of a new truly British yarn - roll on August!
