Named after the Hambleton Hills in North Yorkshire, this area houses an Iron Age hill fort from around 400BC and offers stunning views over the Vale of York. These hills also include the Hambleton Drove Road, an ancient highway running from Scotland down to the South of England, used to move cattle, and also contains prehistoric burial grounds and evidence of habitation from those times. This is also where you’ll find the White Horse carved into the limestone above Kilburn. Many of James Herriot’s adventures took place in the Hambleton Hills, and even Wordsworth found inspiration following his visits. Our Hambleton is a rich pink-purple colour.

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.
