Why use Wensleydale yarns and wool?

rare breed wensleydale and leicester longwool

Wensleydale is a longwool breed of sheep with a splendid sheen and beautiful purl (the natural curl of the wool). The wool can range in length from 10-12 inches each year. These beautiful animals come from the Dales Region of Yorkshire, England and are considered a rare breed according the to Rare Breed Survival Trust.

Anyone who has worked with the yarns of a Wensleydale will tell you that the wool is incredibly durable and can be worn hard while still having a fabulous hand, and it drapes beautifully.
