Lichen & Moss – Whiteface Woodland

£10.00

100% Whiteface Woodland

This is the most wonderful wool to spin. It is from a rare breed called Whiteface Woodland, which was close to extinct 30 years ago, but thanks to the increase in interest in wool from rare breeds, it is now reviving.

The fibre itself is extremely springy, fluffy and crisp – it has a lovely hand, and spins beautifully. I love how it spins up as well – the yarn has lots and lots of elasticity, and I find it’s very easy to spin evenly. It’s just delightful.

This fibre is coarser than fibres like BFL and Merino, but I would wear it next to my skin quite comfortably (although I am quite hardy). It would be perfect for gloves or socks, as it’s quite hard wearing, or for sweaters and hats.

Colours & Inspiration

This blend of soft greens and grey was inspired by the landscape of the North Yorkshire moors in winter, where my mother lives. No matter how cold and grey the weather, there is always some deep green moss or bright lichen clinging to the dry stone walls.

Each braid weighs approximately 100g.
