A Double Knit Falkland Merino wool yarn which is blent with either Shetland Moorit, or Blue Faced Leicester.
Blacker Swan is a joint venture between Blacker Yarns and Andrez and Ali Short who farm at Swan Inlet Farm on the Falkland Islands. Andrez and Ali shear their specialist merino type dual purpose sheep, sort and grade the fleeces and send them by ship to the UK, where The Natural Fibre Company turns the fine white fleeces into luxurious worsted spun yarns.
There are lovely dyed colours, which are named after the rich wildlife of the Falkland Islands. All the natural Blacker Swan shades are produced by blending the Falkland Merino with either Shetland Moorit, or Blue Faced Leicester.
