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.

Near to the fields where the Border Leicester sheep graze, there is a distinctive and well known hill on the skyline.  It is called Roseberry Topping. It would be a fairly ordinary conical hill except that one side of the top is chopped away and there is a cliff face from the top for about a quarter of the circumference of the summit.  This was as a result of a rock fall in one of the ironstone mines that had been tunneled into the side of the hill.  Its name evokes soft, smoky, rosy, raspberry pink and it seemed the right choice for our deep pink.
