Clapdale Wool on a 3kg cone - cream nep yarn for weaving

Clapdale Dalesbred Wool 2-ply 5nm 3kg Cone for Weaving


An approx 3kg cone of woollen spun undyed 2-ply 5nm British wool yarn created from our Clapdale traceable Yorkshire wool project, manufactured for weaving into cloth and blankets.

This yarn contains 68% Dalesbred yarn from our Clapdale Wool project blended with 32% British Wool Cheviot breed yarn. We had intended to make it from 100% Dalesbred but found the yarn would have been too thick to go through weaving machines so added the finer Cheviot yarn to achieve a 5nm thickness.

This 2-ply yarn has been woollen spun for the purposes of weaving into rustic cloth and we've woven both suiting cloth and travel rugs (after dyeing it various colours) from it in a 200 year old Yorkshire woollen mill.

Manufactured exclusively by Glencroft from Dalesbred fleeces collected from three farms within 10 miles of our 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 Farming in Protected Landscapes 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.

This is a  coarse British Wool yarn with a natural creamy golden brown colour containing flecks of darker nep / wool fibres.
