Dorset Down/Friesian Cross - Heathered Violet.

This delightful yarn has shades from violet to lilac.  This is a deliciously soft wool, made from the wool of downy sheep. The Dorset down is not to be confused with Dorset sheep known for their meat (and not for their fleeces:)) 

According to the book In Sheeps' Clothing, the Dorset Down also orginated in England, and the wool is "fairly short, full handling....and is used in high-quality hosery, knitwear, flannels and fine tweed."

Only 2 skeins of this one remaining in this dye lot.  250 yard worsted weight skeins.  $12.00 per skein.
