Knitted Jasmine and Flame

This cute and cuddly pair have been hand-made with the hard-wearing Boreray fleece of Jasmine and Flame, two of our original and charismatic Boreray ewes. Flame's darker fleece was used for their faces, ears, feet and tails while Jasmine's lighter fleece was used for their bodies. They have been hand-made, over several months, at LambWatch HQ: sheared by Dan, washed and spun by Heather, and finally knitted by Lynda. If you'd like to get your hands on them, keep reading! Here's their story....

Jasmine and Flame with their fleeces in June 2016
And their lambs: Flo, Boris and Monty!

Fleece's "rooed", sheared & washed in July 2016
Washed with river water and dried in the sunshine!

Fleeces processed into "bat" in August 2016
Thanks Skipton Spinning Guild for helping Heather!

Bats spun into yarn throughout winter
Two fleeces take a surprising amount of time to spin!

Yarn knitted into these two by Lynda throughout winter
Modelled by Jasmine, Flame & other Borerays in the background!
