Cartmel Hand-spun yarn is made of 100% pure wool from rare breed self coloured sheep reared in the English Lake District. The wool comes in a wide range of natural colours varying from deep brown, through grey and beige to near white. These are carefully blended to showcase their beautiful natural colours. Hand-spun fibres have naturally occurring irregularities which add to the distinctive character of the yarn.
