Three Priddy Droves – Romney pure sock

£23.00

Welcome the Romney pure sock! My newest yarn spun from the fleece of organic Romney sheep. Who roam in the fields of an eco-farm in the Mendip hills, in the south-west of England. The fleece is long and strong making it the perfect choice for garments that need a little extra durability. Spun worsted, with a slightly higher tension for added strength.

The Romney pure sock has been spun with versatility in mind. The sheep have a soft characteristic making it a great yarn for other knitted accessories and garments.

Inspired by the droves at Priddy. Droves were created to allow farmers to drive their animals from the fields to the local markets. They’re no longer used this way and are now valuable corridors for wildlife to safely move across the land.
