4 ply wool - Poll Dorset
The Troubadour Range - 4 ply wool - Organic Poll Dorset Yarn
Our organic 4 ply (4/14) yarn is from certified Organic Poll Dorset Sheep raised in France, it has been combed and spun in the north of Italy (close to us) and hand dyed with plants here in our dye house in France.
This 4 ply wool has a very low carbon footprint as well as being a soft, springy, very strong, slightly lustrous and versatile yarn with excellent stitch definition. It is ideal for socks, gloves, hats and sweaters.
You will find an interesting review of the yarn by Scottish designer Kate Davies on her blog Needled.
The Troubadour Range is dyed in dye lots of a kilo, ensuring that you will have enough of one dye lot for larger projects. The range is based for the most part on medieval dyes and is inspired by our regional history, rich with the echo of troubadours and their ladies, the landscape and castles they frequented.
