Double Knit (DK)/Sport

WYS Wensleydale Fleece (Gems)


WYS Wensleydale Gems are a truly lovely yarn with an amazing sheen. Though listed as a DK due to meterage per weight, this product will work up closer to a sport weight or even a 4ply as wensleydale is a heavier fleece than many, so please check the tension on your project.



West Yorkshire Spinners Fleece is a stunning range of 100% Wensleydale fleece. The lustre and sheen of this fibre has resulted in a stunning range of colours that gleam like precious stones.

This product carries the British Wool Marketing Board Platinum Award.
