20th Anniversary Special – Mill Marls 4ply
We are rather smitten with these Mill Marls – most of us Mill Folk have had to snag a skein or two for our personal stashes… We love the bouncy naturally chocolate brown Zwartbles fibre round here, so we wanted to do something special to really celebrate the beauty of this sheep’s glorious shades! We have created two shades, light and dark, in both Fibre Tops and 4ply yarn.
The Zwartbles sheep originates from Friesland in The Netherlands but is now widely farmed across Exmoor and the fibre, once shorn, is graded at our local British Wool grading station. Here we have blended it with our local white sheep breed, the Exmoor Blueface, and a smattering of Corriedale to add a dash of (dyed) colour. The results are a beautiful, voluminous, bouncy yarn and tops blend.
These 4ply skeins are 400m per 100g
