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.

The name of these sandstone crags at the western end of Hasty Bank, the largest group of similar stones in the North York Moors, is often written as Wain Stones. They have been shaped by many centuries of wind, ice and rain.  It is said that on a windy day you may hear the breeze making a wailing sound as it blows between the stones. The Saxon word wanian meant to grieve so maybe the wailing noise or the legend that a Danish chieftain was killed here gave it the name.  On a sunny day, the stones have areas of silvery grey which is very similar to our light grey yarn.
