How do we describe a yarn as special as Garthenor Number 2? A family of 2 stranded woollen spun 4ply yarns using the fleece of single varieties of sheep in their natural shades which perfectly highlights the differences between these breeds, yet forms a coherent collection of yarns which would sit beautifully together in a project such as a sampler blanket or cushion or singly for a garment that has the exact amount of rusticity for your personal taste.

Whether you enjoy the smooth lustre of a creamy white Blue Faced Leicester or a crisp, robust golden brown Manx Loughton, there is something for you in this range which also includes bouncy white Poll Dorset, reliable chocolate brown Shetland and sturdy heathery brown Jacob.
