We call this “Shearer’s Choice” because the idea for this line came from dealing with a local shearer who has been selling us wool for years. Previous versions were Dorset and some Dorset Polypay cross. This time we went for Cheviot, but it’s just as lofty and yummy. We’ve heard it’s great for sock yarn because of the springiness, as well as felting!
