"The trigger for me to start developing my own yarns was the idea of promoting English spinning mills and English sheep breeds. "From fleece to finished yarn in less than 50 miles" was my idea. Wool Local fulfils exactly this ambition, being both quintessentially British and sustainably produced. The raw wool is bought at the Bradford wool auction and then sorted, combed, spun, steamed and wound in Yorkshire. This wonderful blend is approximately half luxurious Bluefaced Leicester wool and half robust Masham in a fine 4-ply thickness. It is thus a truly local wool, with its roots in the heart of the English textile industry." - Erika Knight
