Leeds-based retailer Baa Ram Ewe’s new Winterburn yarn was designed to throw the spotlight on Yorkshire’s Masham sheep. The breed has smaller ringlets on the fleece than popular Wensleydale, but with added bounce and loft from its hill-loving male ancestry, the Dalesbred. Female lambs were considered so pretty farmers would tie ribbons into their fleeces before taking them to market. The wool is made up of 25% ecru Masham, 25% dark brown Masham and 50% Bluefaced Leicester.
