Erika Knight: "The catalyst for creating my own yarn collection was to support the British heritage of textile mills and to promote native sheep breeds.
From fleece to finished yarn in less than 50 miles, Wool Local is both authentically British and environmentally sustainable. Starting at the British wool auction in Bradford, the wool is scoured, combed, spun, dyed, steamed and hanked in the county of Yorkshire.
An intimate blend of luxurious Bluefaced Leicester and hardwearing Masham, in a fine 4 Ply weight, this is a truly local wool, with its roots in the heartland of British textile manufacturing."
