We’re trying a new yarn from the wonderful West Yorkshire Spinners
100% WENSLEYDALE GEMS DK Collection
I wanted to start stocking more pure British brands and yarn and you can’t get anymore British than the wonderful Wensleydale! This brand new collection from the WYS is stunning! It’s a DK yarn, even though it does look a little finer than a DK and it’s 100% Wensleydale wool! We’re trying a handful of colours at first to see how well they go down and if it’s popular we’ll increase the colour range that we stock. Wensleydale is the perfect fleece for dyeing, this is because of the lustre and shine of the fibre. The dyeware accentuates this natural effect giving a beautiful sheen, allowing us to produce stunning shades – hence why the collection is called GEMS as the colours are stunning. Some would argue that the Wensleydale is the best – out of all fleece/fibre – to dye and show colour.
The West Yorkshire Spiners have named this new colour collection ‘Gems’ as the shades gleam like precious stones.
