GROUSE - 75% US Lincoln 25% US Rambouillet Sport Weight Yarn
GROUSE SPORT - 70% Lincoln 30% Rambouillet blend yarn, sport weight, 185 yards per 56 grams, 2 ply, rare breed blend
This is a very special yarn. Lincoln sheep are one of the most endangered sheep breeds, listed as a priority breed by The Rare Breeds Survival Trust and a threatened breed by The Livestock Conservancy. And yet, this breed is vitally important, both because of its history (it is a foundation breed for many of our modern sheep breeds, such as Polwarth, Blue Faced Leicester, Romney, and Corriedale) and because of its beautiful fibre. Lincoln fibre on its own can be a little scratchy, but when blended with wonderfully soft Rambouillet, the resulting yarn is shiny, bouncy, and full of character. It will produce beautiful garments and accessories that will stand the test of time and will only get better with wear.
The purchase of this yarn helps preserve this important breed and its wonderful genetics. Thank you for supporting rare breed yarn!

**Please note: I have made every attempt to photograph the colour as accurately as possible, but colours may vary due to differences in screens. There may be colour variations between skeins, and therefore, it's advisable to alternate skeins in multi-skein projects. I dye in small batches, so please ensure you purchase enough yarn to complete your project, as yarn from another batch may be different.**
