Crisp and light with a wonderful bounce, this rustic, woollen-spun fingering-weight from Polo & Co is a blend of 3 French sheep breeds- the Bizet, Blanche du Massif Central and Noire du Velay. Not commonly used in yarns, the fleeces from these breeds are generally discarded as a waste product from the meat industry, however they make a yarn perfect for colourwork, structured knits and any designs that benefit from a bit of texture.
Woollenflower yarns are dyed with plants collected around Glasgow, food waste and sustainably-produced raw plant material and dye extracts; these shades are light-fast but, like all natural dyes, may change and develop over time, a quality valued by many cultures.
These particular shades were dyed with birch/ cutch (far left) and rhubarb/ pomegranate and are rich gold-russets.
