The misty, silvery version of the original Hebridean/Zwartbles Heritage yarn. The natural white of the Exmoor Blueface enhances the silver tones found in the Hebridean to create a natural shade with lots of movement. A soft handle produces a fabric with bounce 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.
The Hebridean fleece was clipped on 19th July 2017 Escrick Park Estate clip at Escrick Park Estate and both the Zwartbles and Exmoor Blueface are sourced locally to the mill in Devon.
Patterns created for Heritage 4ply are interchangeable with Brume 4ply. See Rachel's book, Beginnings Vol 1.
