Crisp and light with a wonderful bounce, this woollen-spun fingering-weight 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. This particular shade was dyed with indigo. Indigo is one of the most light-fast of all natural dyes but, like all natural dyes, shades dyed with it may change and develop over time, a quality valued by many cultures.
Together with Whorl in Avocado, this yarn was used by Maddie Harvey for the Hecate Shawl in Pompom August 2018. You will need 3 skeins of Masgot Fine and 1 skein of Whorl to make Hecate.
