Radioactive Raspberry Jam - The English Gentleman DK - Bluefaced Leicester & Masham




Do you have a desert island yarn? I have finally found mine and this is it. Soft, buttery, rustic without being scratchy, this is my perfect yarn. The undyed base is a rich oatmeal colour from the brown Masham so the dye results in a rich and textured coverage. Everything about this yarn is British and it is spun down the road from here in Yorkshire.

The last picture shows the colour of the yarn before it is dyed, to show off the oatmeal.
