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 would be perfect for hand dying projects. It has gentle variations in grey/brown warm tones.
Each 100g hank of 4-ply will be around 350 metres (380 yards) long.
Each 100g hank of Double Knitting yarn will be around 220 metres (238 yards) long.
