I have created some Pinterest boards for British breed wool from each category of the swatch-along for inspiration and interest. Obviously I can’t guarantee stock levels or anything like that, but hopefully this will give you a little idea of what is out there.
You will be aware that some of the breeds from Britain are not readily available as knitting wool and you may need to seek out fleece and fibre – I hope I have given enough inspiration there too. You can view the British Wool Marketing Boards post on British Sheep and their wool categories. Funnily enough I have seen breeds like Clun Forest and Charrolais available in yarn form in North America, where they aren’t available here – so lots of scope to discover British breeds in other parts of the world…get detectiving!
Anyway, enjoy a little Monday morning browsing on me…
