British Blue Faced Leicester & Alpaca DK Wool
MORECAMBE Double Knit Yarn in ‘Gilpin’
‘MORECAMBE’ is a British Blue Faced Leicester & Alpaca DK wool. The Blue Faced Leicester wool comes from farms in the Yorkshire Dales and has been carefully graded on our farm. This wool has been blended with British grown alpaca and spun in Yorkshire to produce a soft, springy double knitting yarn.
This knitting wool is a blend of 70% Yorkshire Blue Faced Leicester wool worsted spun with 30% UK alpaca.
‘Gilpin ‘ is light shade of grey. There are ten other colours dyed for us in the Scottish Borders and named after rivers and islands in Morecambe bay close to our farm in the Lake District. Gilpin is a river which flows into the bay.
