We’ve just done a massive update of our NeverMoor yarn base at Undercover Otter!
This amazing fingering-weight yarn base consists of 60% Exmoor Blueface — fleece from a crossbreed between Exmoor and a Bluefaced Leicester sheep that gives the yarn strength and shine, 20% Corriedale to add softness and 10% Devon Zwartbles — originally a Dutch/Frisian sheep breed that adds a springy bounce and an amazing heathered look to the overall yarn. For extra security, and to make this yarn perfect for all your sock knitting needs, as well as colorwork, 10% nylon is added to round out this yarn base.
NeverMoor is perfect for sturdy, warm garments without sacrificing any comfort. It can be used in colorwork that needs to last a while and blooms into a beautiful soft and sturdy yarn after blocking. The NeverMoor base is sourced and milled by the lovely people over at John Arbon Textiles and I’ve fallen head over heels for it. If you are looking for solids to go with our hand-dyed skeins, check out the Exmoor Sock section on the John Arbon website, since this is the same yarn base.
