Purelife British Sheep Breeds Add to My Favorites
Count on Rowan for innovation, and with the creation of "Purelife British Sheep Breeds" yarn, they've put a new twist on the eco-friendly approach. As an annually renewable natural resource, the Rowan British wool is shorn & blended from 4 classic British sheep breeds (Jacob, Black Welsh, Bluefaced Leicester & Suffolk). Then the beautiful undyed wool is spun into 5 natural shades capturing the beauty of each breed's fleece. With its natural lanolin maintained, "British Sheep Breeds" yarn is the ideal choice for warm outerwear & rugged sweaters for men & women all fall & winter.
