  • Product Description

    Although most of the sheep on the Falkland Islands are white, there are a few with naturally coloured fleeces. Blacker has been able to obtain a small supply of this special Merino cross wool.  The handle is smooth, soft and luxurious but not quite as soft as the white Falklands wool. The naturally coloured sheep have coarser fleeces. Being worsted spun, the yarn has a bulky, drapey quality, which will work well for structured and flowing garments and also for textures. 

    Goes great with the Blacker Swan line. We've included a photo above that shows the Sand and Cinnamon Grass colourways of the Swan line next to the Mushroom and Dark Brown natural colors of the Falkland Island Coloured Fleeces line.

    Falkland Island Coloured Fleeces is sold as a 50g ball, ready to knit. Bred and spun in the UK.

    Please note we are unable to re-order this yarn.  Please order enough for your project.
