Northiam is a smooth, worsted-spun yarn from the finest Bluefaced Leicester sourced, scoured, spun and dyed at a British mill. Velvety against bare skin this long, semi-lustrous fibre has a natural drape, holding a block beautifully.
The softest non-superwash Bluefaced Leicester you will ever feel, Northiam is low pilling with a dry, slightly crisp handle. Its long-staple fibres are excellent for both durable items and delicate lace. Spun with a rounded ply it has excellent stitch definition for cables, lace and other textures while creating beautifully balanced stockinette.
In keeping with my ethical goals and standards, Northiam fibres and labour is sourced with British suppliers who abide by The Animal Welfare Act 2006 and its detailed subsidiary guidelines. My products actively work to support British Farmers and safeguard animals and the environment, endeavouring to make the wool industry sustainable for future generations by meeting the needs of the present.
