Barcombe Romneys – 100% Romney 4ply
This yarn has never left Sussex!
Barcombe Romneys, headed by Shepard Susanna Steer, is a small-scale enterprise working to produce the highest standard of wool from a small flock of Romney shearlings and ewes, with an aim to work locally and stay sensitive to animal welfare, nature conservation, and sustainability.
This beautiful semi worsted spun 4 ply yarn is the wonderful outcome. It has been carefully spun at Diamond Fibres, a small mill in East Sussex just 40 minutes from the farm where the wool is produced. It is lustrous and has a lot of drape making it a great for making light garments and accessories. Want to dabble in hand-dying? Thanks to its natural lustre this yarn will catch dyes with a lot of vibrancy and sheen.
