Pip comes from the traditional Swaledale ‘Yan Tan Thethera’ method of sheep counting: Yan (one), Tan (Two), Tether (Three), Mether (Four) and Pip- our Fifth baa ram ewe yarn!

A delicious blend of Wensleydale and Bluefaced Leicester wool, combined with a touch of magical UK Alpaca in homage to philanthropist and Yorkshire mill owner Sir Titus Salt. This luxurious yet authentic combination is also reflected in the shade range: deep, rich colours that evoke images and memories of a land which has such strong historic connections to wool and wool manufacturing. Titus is spun in Yorkshire.
This yarn is spun and dyed in the heart of Yorkshire, the home of Rowan. Valley Tweed is made by using the spinning method traditional for tweed yarns and is therefore very airy and light and has a long meterage. A subtle colour effect is created by using an additional thread of lambswool. 100% wool. Hand wash.
