This hat is exquisite but we would expect that, as it's made with Home Farm Wensleydales DK and knitted by expert needlewoman Linda 😃

This pure wool, grown by a slaughter-free flock in the Cotswolds, came out top in a recent review of natural yarns. There are five colours to choose from, Linda used the blue and cream; she also used a pompom maker for the bobble - these gadgets are so much quicker and easier than two bits of card and it makes such a ni ely shaped, fulsome bobble 😊

Lovely, lovely work 😊

PS: Linda's going to let us know who the pattern is by.

That’s great, thank you.  I turned your dark brown locks into Christmas elves and will be showing a group how to make some Santa’s with the white locks.

The slippers are complete and I’m so pleased 😁 with them, they are for my husband who always has cold feet 👣 last night he wore them for the first time and commented how warm and cosy his feet were, I told him never to take them off.
We are hoping to go to Countryfile live 🌿 again next year for the third time as we think it is an amazing show, so hopefully we may see you again and buy an other amazing product.

Thank you both so much for letting us visit your wonderful farm today. We all enjoyed the natural beauty and learning about your business, both the sheep themselves and the wool. We appreciate so much the time you so kindly spent with us & will remember it always!

Experimenting with texture...Using the best of British Blue Faced Leicester from Home Farm Wensleydales to achieve the effect of boucle. Hat is dyed when ready. 
I think I got the technique now!
