Description

Kilburn village in North Yorkshire has been around since Norman times and is mentioned in the Domesday Book.  Back then it was known as Chileburn, and today is famed for its White Horse carved into the hillside. It was also home to Robert Thompson, also known as ‘mouse man’, who carved mice into furniture he built from oak.  Our Kilburn is a beautiful deep green.

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!
