The Neighbo(u)rhood Sheep Society

Indie knitting shop, Ginger Twist Studio in Edinburgh, used our Norfolk Horn wool for the first instalment of the Neighbo(u)rhood Sheep Society Best of British Yarn Club 2015.

Based in Edinburgh, the collaboration between Ginger's Hand Dyed and Yarn and Pointy Sticks Design created the hand-dyed Best of British range from wool sourced directly from small producers for what is a unique 100% British yarn club.

The first installment used Kentwell's Norfolk Horn wool, beautifully dyed and the duo say the fibre is dense and springy making it the perfect base for warm accessories. And here is an example of the finished product!
