Peak District Yarns is delighted to offer Bleetingbecka’s delicious lopi style yarn spun from local Derbyshire Gritstone sheep.
The sheep live in the High Peak and are lovingly looked after by Becka. She has farming in her blood having grown up on a farm in Chinley. Becka started off with a few sheep from her mum’s flock but, after lambing for other people, she soon fell in love with Derbyshire Gritstone. Her favourite tups are called Eric and Ernie!
Becka is a crafter at heart and realised how she could use her sheep’s fleece to create unique yarn. And Bleetingbecka was born!!
This lightly plyed lopi-style yarn knits up as aran and is undyed. Dyers will love it as it takes the dye beautifully. It also felts really well so can is perfect for Icelandic-style knits or felted items.
One skein is 100g and approx 200m. Gentle hand wash only.
