Rachel Atkinson's Daughter of A Shepherd 2016 batch launches today at 8pm BST exclusively on her website. The Hebridean blend yarn is undyed and available both in DK and 4ply/fingering weights. Last year's batch sold old quickly. The wool clip comes from sheep on the Escrick Park Estate where her father shepherds.
The price will be announced when the yarn goes on sale.

Blacker Yarns' new Samite range went on sale last week offering 15 shades inspired by the pre-Raphaelite and Arts and Crafts Movements. The skeins are are 3ply silk blend containing a mixture of 30% Blue Faced Leicester, 40% Shetland, 20% Ahimsa silk and 10% Gotland. Each 100g skein costs £24.60.
Two free patterns on the Blacker Yarns' website support the yarn: a hap and a scarf.
I haven't had chance yet to sample either yarn but hope to do so and review so in the future.
Look out for my review of Pom Pom Press' Interpretations: Volume 4!
