Description

A Cistercian abbey in North Yorkshire, Rievaulx was seized in 1538 by Henry VIII during his dissolution of monasteries. Considered one of the great abbeys in England, this vibrant red shade captures its magnificence, which has not dulled, despite Henry’s actions.

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!
