This yarn is made from sheep from Exmoor Blueface sheep - a cross breed of the Exmoor Horn (full-bodied and hard wearing) and Bluefaced Leicester (softness and lustre) to it has been added naturally dark browny-black Devon Zwartbles to give extra bounce and some subtle flecs of colour, as some Falklands Corriedale to enhance softness and stitch definition and just a hint of nylon to make them hard wearing.
