When the gorse, or whin as it is known as here, is out in full bloom, there is a wonderful smell of coconut that inhabits the hills and valleys where it grows. It always takes me by surprise - every single time!
The yarn is made from a blend of Bluefaced Leicester and Bowmont. I would describe it as a sport weight or heavy 4ply, and contains approximately 350m per 100g.
This yarn is exclusive to Ripples Crafts and I developed the yarn to celebrate moving into the second decade of Ripples Crafts. The yarn has been "grown" and spun in the UK. The Bowmont content is sourced from farms in Aberdeenshire, and the BFL is sourced from flocks around the UK.
