A 100g hank of undyed DK wool for hand knitting. Manufactured exclusively by Glencroft from fleeces collected from two farms within 5 miles of their warehouse in Clapham, Yorkshire Dales.

The Clapdale Wool project was launched to create a fully traceable yarn that benefitted local farmers with help from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Sustainable Development Fund. Farmers were paid a decent price for their clip and in addition 10% of the profits from the project will also go back to the farms.

The wool contains all the sheep breeds on these two Clapham farms - Dalesbred, Teeswater, Blue Face Leicester (BFL), North of England Mule and Texel. It has produced a beautiful DK weight yarn with a reasonably soft handle and of course has the gorgeous smell of real wool. 

They have scoured, carded, combed and spun this wool entirely in West Yorkshire. This is undyed so is predominately a natural cream colour with a tiny amount of darker black and brown wool fibres.

Each hank also has a link on the label to two free knitting patterns created by local hand knit expert Sandra Oakeshott, for a bias scarf and a child's hat and scarf - you can see the finished items in the photos, made from the very first Clapdale hanks off the spinning machines!
