Notes

The Duncton flock's 2011 crop had a fairly long staple. This produced a light DK yarn with less bounce and a closer spun texture.

Notes

The Nepcote flock's 2016 crop produced a slightly denser yarn than the Duncton flock with wonderful bounce and a beautiful halo. 

Needles: 2.75mm to 3.25mm, 2-3 US

Gauge: 10x10cm (4x4") =

              25-28 sts x 36-40 rows

Notes

The Ridings flock's early 2017 crop is lambswool and so has the shortest staple of the three flocks so far. This makes the yarn extra soft, loosely spun, with lots of bounce and more fuzziness.

WASHING & CARING FOR YOUR WOOL

For all our wool we recommend that you hand wash only.

 

The Ridings flock wool is lambswool and is extra soft and loose, so please be super kind and gentle when washing.

 

Dry flat, and if reshaping is required use a blocking board with pins.

Store flat and away from direct sun.

For our plant dyed wool we recommend that you soak very strong colours before use if pairing with Chalk Path or other lighter colours.

You will find that skeins dyed used indigo may result in crocking, this is perfectly natural and will ease after wear.
