Jacob marl aran/thick DK
Jacob
This aran/DK weight black marl Jacob yarn was hanspun from fleece produced by a talented young farmer on Sanday. The fleece was picked to remove vegetation, then the ends were flick carded to loosen the fibres before being handspun. This is a beautifully soft yarn that is suitable for children and babies. In addition, it will felt well so care must be taken when washing not to agitate the fibres.

 Shetland moorit plyed
                  Shetland brown/grey 4ply/DK
Shetland moorit plyed with Shetland brown-grey
This beautiful yarn is handspun from two fleeces produced on Headbanks croft on Sanday. The moorit (caramel brown) has been scoured and carded at the woolen mill on the island of North Ronaldsay which I can see from my back garden. The brown-grey fleece was spun straight from the fleece. After plying, the resulting yarn was washed and then skeined to produce this elegant yarn. It is somewhere between 4-ply and double knitting in weight.

Ryeland chunky
Ryeland
A chunky, hardwearing yarn that makes lovely socks. Handspun from fleece sourced from the farm of Crudy on the island of Sanday. This yarn was created by spinning the fleece as it came from the sheep with a minimum of carding. It has been carefully washed after spinning and bound into skeins.
Shetland cream aran
Shetland
An aran-weight yarn spun from fleece produced on Crudy farm on the island of Sanday. This fleece was lightly scoured at home before spinning into this beautiful yarn.
Jacob-Texel grey, DK/aran
Jacob- Texel
An interesting yarn spun directly from the fleece that was grown at a croft on Sanday. It is slightly thicker than DK though not as thick as aran. Although I describe the colour as a steel-grey it does not do justice to the myriad of subtle shades of grey that are present. This yarn is hardwearing and makes a good sturdy hat. If knitted on extra-large needles it makes a pliable, warm scarf. It would make a lovely bag!
