Only the British worship their sheep breeds so much to mix their fleeces to bring out their intrinsic qualities. Winterburn is a thick wool (aran) but very light (because of the curls of the Masham sheep) and slightly shiny.
It has a rustic appearance, remains soft and, as said, very light, which is a nice quality for such a thick wool. Use it to knit hats (one skein), jumpers or cardigans (6-8 skeins).
In Laine 11, you will find a beautiful cardigan, Visiting Cardigan, in Winterburn Aran.
