Vintage No 5
Home-grown & farm-fresh yarn!
Blended from fleeces from Roobie, Beatrice, and Poppy, with white merino and tussah silk. Buckwheat is a natural grey, with warm brown undertones. The texture is lofty, vibrant, and organic.
As with all Vintage yarns, fleeces and rovings are hand-selected as the best of its kind and for the unique qualities it contributes to the final blend. I look for fibers that are are extremely soft but resistant to pilling. Minimal and gentle processing means there may be the occasional bit of vegetable matter, but it also means that the yarn retains its sheepy characteristics and feels full of life.
