Linda of Kettle Yarn Co. desired a yarn that was sheep-y and rustic, yet soft enough for princess-y skin. So, she helped dream up Baskerville, a blend of 60% Exmoor Blueface, 25% Gotland and 15% silk. This Kettle Yarn Co. exclusive is a worsted-spun 2ply that comes in a 437-yard skeins that Linda indigo dyed in lovely shades that range from a lightly heathered silver to a deep blue.
