Our Gotland cross ryeland wool is a perfect blend of our two favourite fibers. These 100g hanks are worsted weight (inbetween DK and Aran) and are perfect for knitting, dyeing, and crocheting.
Gotland’s are a Scandinavian sheep breed first brought to the UK in the 1970’s they are prized for their silvery, lustrous curls and their wool is notoriously pleasant to work with.
Ryelands are one of the UK’s oldest sheep breeds, prized throughout history for their fine fleeces which have a wonderful natural crimp that makes their wool soft and easy to work with.
All the wool sold in our shop comes from our organic well tended flock of woolly sheep. Who graze on wildflower pastures throughout the year as part of a regenerative farming practice. Find out more about our farm here: www.lowauldgirth.co.uk
Our Gotland wool is grown on our farm in Scotland, shorn on farm, and processed in the UK. We are very conscious about keeping our carbon footprint as low as possible, and our products as local as possible.
