Something very exciting is happening soon at Bluebell Yarns: A British Yarn Expedition. I am working with farmers and small producers to create a monthly subscription box which explores the wonders of single breed British Yarn. Each box will contain undyed and dyed yarn from a single breed on a single farm. It will also include information about the breed, the farm, and some suggestions on what it could be used for.
