Athena is the name I gave to this wonderful blend of Teeswater, Bluefaced Leicester and Gotland wool. Athena is one of my favourite Teeswater sheep and is also the name of the Goddess of Handicrafts!
This woollen spun blend is soft, with a lovely bounce and comes in 4ply and DK. It’s beautiful in its natural colour but RiverKnits have created some gorgeous colours for us.
Shepherd’s Warning is the tones of blue and Knigfisher is the blue/green variegated skeins.
Each 100g hank of 4-ply will be around 350 metres (380 yards) long.
Each 100g hank of DK yarn will be around 220 metres (238 yards) long.
