This natural gradient set comprises of four 50g skeins of undyed [and unbleached] double knit wool yarn. The skeins are made from the wool of Portland and Black Welsh Mountain sheep to create tones from a natural cream through to a very dark brown / black. The sheep are part of a conservation grazing flock from Armscote Manor in Warwickshire. Firm yet plump, the yarn softens after washing and is ideal for hats, socks, gloves etc and knits up beautifully in colourwork.

Very British Wool has yarn sustainability at its core. Our ethically produced wool yarns are British through and through from the farm to the finished yarn and can be traced back to the flock, and sometimes the individual sheep, that gave its fleece for the yarn. Independent British wool growers and yarn producers [usually smallholders or small scale farmers] provide the ultimate in sustainable yarns for knitting and crochet projects and by buying their yarns you are supporting British farmers and directly championing native and rare breed sheep.
