Blind Ram Yarns is run by Christine Richards in Machynlleth. This lovely yarn has been expertly spun at Curlew Weavers Mill near Llandysul using fleeces from Christine’s own sheep (Stevie the Blind Llanwenog Ram and Llanwenog/Blue-faced Leicester cross Agnes and Bryher). She then collected Llanwenog fleeces from local small holders to create this creamy, hearty, full bodied yarn.
It knits and crochets beautifully, with excellent definition for textural stitches. It is available n DK and Aran weights; as natural plant dyed. Plants foraged from the local area, such as bracken and oak leaves, or more exotic dyes bought in such as indigo and brazilwood to create stunning, varied and beautifully coordinated palette.
Please handwash gently in warm water using non-biological washing detergent. Great care has to be taken to rinse the yarn well but some residue may reside and colour may run ever so slightly.
