Masham is a longwool with a ton of shine and drape. Yarn spun from this wool has a lovely halo, and it takes dye with loads of depth and intensity. It’s similar to Wensleydale in softness, and in staple length, although it doesn’t tend to be as crimpy as Wensleydale. It’s lovely for felting, and it spins up into a really drapey, lustrous yarn.
Boat Race was originally one of my layered yarn colourways, and it’s one of my favourites. I wanted to see what would happen if I took each layer and dyed it sequentially onto fibre, and I love the way it’s come out. It’s a gorgeous mix of violet, apple green, blue and soft grey. 10% of all sales from this product will go towards Surfers Against Sewage.
