Description

Surrounded by moorland, Rosedale is almost in the centre of the North Yorks Moors national park. The main settlement in the valley is Rosedale Abbey, which was built around the site of a former Cistercian priory.  Iron-ore extraction began there during the Roman period and lasted until the early 20th century, with calcining kilns and other mine workings still present . Our Rosedale is a gentle antique pink colour which perfectly complements many of our other shades.

This beautiful worsted spun high end Border Leicester yarn is grown here on our farm in North Yorkshire, from our pedigree flock of over 300 pedigree Border Leicester sheep, who all live to grow old.

After shearing we handpick the fleeces and transport them to Bradford for washing, combing and worsted spinning. The result is stunning.  With a great handle, stitch definition and drape, it is the perfect yarn for your special project. British through and through and we are very proud of it!

The yarn is available in 100g skeins.
