BritishBreeds 4ply is a fine blend of 4 different sheep breeds, Bluefaced Leicester, Exmoor Horn, Wendsleydale and Zwartbles. Each fleece brings with it a different characteristic to the finished yarn. And the smell... We all love that glorious woolly smell here at Baa!

Marie has worked for two years with John Arbon to produce this luxury worsted spun yarn in its beautiful pallette of 16 shades. Pattern support for this one of a kind yarn is provided in Marie's latest books Wildwood & Gentle which contain stunning garment and accessory designs in Marie's signature style.
