For this Birthday blend Blacker have created a strong, yet soft, squishy woollen spun yarn, using Blue Faced Leicester and white Shetland with a drop of Black Welsh Mountain to add a little texture.
As a woollen spun yarn it has a light, fluffy, bulky appearance with a strong memory to increase elasticity and resilience.
The inspiration for this years collection formed from long and wonderful woodland walks, here in Cornwall. They have chosen a earthy colour pallet with a variety of tonal greens which would look stunning as a beautiful cable or simple jumper. They imagined Autumnal walks in cosy shawls knitted or crocheted in the striking rustic Woodland collection.
The colour pallet contains one natural shade, a light slightly speckled grey and seven dyed shades. The added Black Welsh Mountain fibre adds texture and depth to the dyed shades. All the fibre used for this special birthday yarn has be sourced from local farms in the South West.
