“Ruadh” – Heirloom Scottish Wool

Dyed Ronaldsay wool yarn.

This rare breed of sheep comes from the northern Orkney Islands in Scotland. This hardy breed survives on the rocky island by grazing on seaweed for part of the year. These sheep are  “primitive” – meaning they have not been extensively cross-bred, but remain an heirloom breed indicative of the wool our ancestors would have worked with.

This yarn is much more hard wearing than Merino and will hold its shape nicely. It is a finely-spun 2-ply yarn that could also be used in felted projects.  Approximately 30-35 microns.
