Bertie Bassett - Ellie DK - 100% Border Leicester - Slaughter free British wool
A very special and luxurious base - brought to Ovis Yarns in collaboration with Doulton Border Leicester Yarns.
This yarn is wonderful to work with, softening on blocking and similar in feel to our Archie base. It is a perfect no-nyon sock yarn, that has great stitch definition and grip making it great for cables, colour work and textured stitches.
The wool is 100% Border Leicester, a rare breed British sheep, sourced from a single farm, and slaughter free. The Doulton flock lead long and happy lives and further information can be found here.
100g / 235m / DK - Grown, processed, spun and dyed within the North of England.
