Northern Borders- Yarn from Border Leicester Wool

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

SKU: northern-border--yarn-from-border-leicester-wool Categories: , ,


Sustainably-raised 100% Border Leicester yarn from our Animal Welfare Approved farm.  Our sheep are humanely raised and rotationally-grazed in Vermont’s scenic Northeast Kingdom.  Border Leicester sheep are known for their long, lustrous fleece that produces beautiful, long-wearing yarn.

Natural and hand-dyed colors available.

Each skein weighs 2 oz and contains 150 yards of sport-weight yarn.

While both Northern Borders and Derby Line are sport-weight yarns by weight and yardage, Northern Borders has the traditional sport-weight gauge and a glossier, drapier feel than Derby Line.  The two different yarns will not knit together compatibly.

Free Shipping in the continental US

Colors, from left to right, are Lakeside Blue, Daylily, Pasture Green, Teal, Blue-Gray, Rosebud, Concord and Tomato.


Interested but wanting to feel the yarn first?  I am happy to send you a 1 yard sample with a coupon for $1 off any future purchase.

    I confess I clicked because of the tag line “from sheep who have read the packet”. Excellent advertising sensibilities! (And bloody smart sheep.)

      Ha! Thanks! I am an LSG member and I thought it would be appreciated. My sheep are pretty LSG also.
