Daughter of A Shepherd:
Speaking of grey, The Little Grey Sheep was also at EYF. This yarn comes from their own flock of sheep in Hampshire, is scoured in Yorkshire, spun in Devon and then dyed back at the farm. I'm in love with their Gotland lace and was so excited to see mini-skeins in that weight too. I'm already thinking a striped Featherweight cardigan needs to be cast on with this.
I'd say that if the Edinburgh Yarn Festival accomplished anything (and it accomplished TONS!), it definitely showcased the very best of British wool and the amazing people behind it all. And this is just a tiny portion of what was available in the marketplace. I feel so incredibly spoiled for choice living in the UK; truly, these are some of the best yarns in the world!
