Dovestone DK celebrates another local UK breed, the Masham. By blending the fleece of the Bluefaced Leicester and Masham, along with the drape of the Wensleydale, Baa Ram Ewe has created another truly special yarn. Soft yet robust and with a lovely woolly bounciness, Dovestone is perfect for pullovers, cardigans, accessories and home items. This luxurious yet authentic combination is also reflected in the shade range: deep, rich colors that evoke images and memories of a land which has such strong historic connections to wool and wool manufacturing. Dovestone DK is grown, dyed and spun in Yorkshire, UK, a dream come true for the owners of Baa Ram Ewe: a luxurious local yarn with striking colors that supports their local industries. We love it because it’s a yarn with a story, adding to the modern history of knitting.
