This is a wonderfully woolly yarn which is perfect for socks, accessories and garments. Why naked silver? This is the colour the yarn is before it's dyed. We treat it exactly the same way as yarns we're dyeing so it goes through a dye bath, but one with only water in it. This removes any spinning oil and size from the yarn, leaving it ready to be used.

We've called this yarn Be Reyt in tribute to our Yorkshire home - it's the classic response when things are going wrong and it's a way of saying it will turn out ok in the end. This is a yarn that will take anything you throw at it and come out smiling.

Spun by John Arbon in Devon. The Exmoor Blueface and Zwartables fleece comes from UK flocks while the Corriedale is from the Falklands. All fleece is processed and spun in the UK.

Exmoor Blueface is a cross bread of Exmoor Horn and Bluefaced Leicester, giving a yarn that is both sturdy and soft. The Zwartables is a coloured fleece, adding a soft grey to the yarn.

Care for this yarn by hand washing it with a mild detergent and drying flat.

Hand dyed yarn varies between skeins and batches. Please ensure you buy enough yarn to complete your project and alternate between skeins for multi skein projects.
