West Yorkshire Spinners Aran Fleece (BFL & Jacobs)
Reared, sheared & spun in Britain, West Yorkshire Spinners's Aran Fleece features the natural shades of BFL and Jacobs sheep! Beautifully springy, it will look fantastic in cables or colourwork - for Cowichan style sweaters, or the warmest winter mitts. The perfect choice for the knitter or crocheter who appreciates a wool that comes to the needles (or hook) sheepy. Extremely proud of their British Heritage, WYS are one of the few remaining worsted spinning companies left in the United Kingdom. They source all their own raw material which is then produced into knitting yarn at their state of the art factory in West Yorkshire. This reduces the carbon footprint of WYS products and also enables them to manufacture at a very low cost. This means they can pass on the savings to you, our customers!
