Doulton Border Leicester yarn is made from the fleeces of sheep that live to grow old. These rare breed sheep produce beautiful fleeces with a long staple length and distinct crimp. This fibre spins to a wonderfully lofty yarn with a lovely natural spring and bounce to it. The handle of the yarn makes it a joy to work with for quick and easy projects and intricate colour work alike: it slips smoothly on and off the needles without losing the strength needed for structured garments. The high quality of this yarn is due to the wonderful fleeces that the sheep produce and those with a discerning eye will be pleased to know of the high level of welfare that is afforded to the flock. Doulton Border Leicester yarn: High welfare, high quality.

Appleton Wiske is a small village in the Hambleton District of North Yorkshire but it was actually one of the 41 ancient parishes of the Wapentake of Langbaurgh in the Cleveland division of the North Riding of Yorkshire.  This dates back to the time of the Danelaw.  A Wapentake was a meeting place where voting took place.  This process continued into the 11th century when the Anglo Saxon ‘Hundreds’ administrative system took over from Danelaw. It is the right name for this wonderful apple shade.
