The misty, silvery version of the original Hebridean/Zwartbles yarn. The natural white of the Exmoor Blueface enhances the silver tones found in the Hebridean to create a shade with lots of movement. A soft handle produces a fabric with bounce and a little more drape than the original and you will be pleased to know this new addition retains the original (and famous) signature scent of the fields, flock and new lambs in straw-filled barns. I am completely besotted with it!
The Hebridean fleece was clipped on 24th June 2016 at Escrick Park Estate and both the Zwartbles and Exmoor Blueface are sourced locally to the mill in Devon.
Patterns created for Heritage DK are interchangeable with Brume DK. See Rachels book, Beginnings Vol 1.
