These 4-ply knitting yarns form a delightfully complimentary pair. both spun from Scotch Mule, with a hint of Black Wensleydale fibres rippled through Las Glas to create a pale blue-grey.
Scotch Mule is a first-generation hybrid of the Blue Faced Leicester and the Scottish Blackface, creating a large and hardy sheep ideal for crofting. The Blue Faced Leicester has a lustre-wool fleece, creating a gorgeous sheen to any yarn spun from its fibres; an attribute often carried into the Mule breed. The twist and light ply of Las shows the lustre off perfectly, allowing the yarn to radiate sheepy beauty.
The Wensleydale sheep is also a lustre wool breed, and here we have added a tiny amount of the more rare Black Wensleydale to give a dappled hint of colour. The Wensleydale is not a native sheep for Uist, but we were lucky to acquire some fleece from our mainland friends.
