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.

As no two sheep are the same each individually produced batch of yarn is unique. As available
