Baa Ram Ewe Dovestone DK

Characteristically strong and soft. Baa Ram Ewe is on a mission to make beautiful yarns that celebrate Yorkshire's woolly heritage. And we are right there with them!
Their stunning Titus yarn (fingering weight) showcased the magnificent Wensleydale sheep with its drape and silkiness. Dovestone DK celebrates another local breed, the Masham, reflecting the unique combination of strength and softness ingrained in the personality of Yorkshire folk.
By blending the fleece of the Bluefaced Leicester and Masham, along with the drape of the Wensleydale, they have created something truly special. Soft yet robust and with a lovely woolly bounciness, Dovestone is one we can't stop squooshing and squeezing! Perfect for "jumpers", cardigans, accessories and home items.
In eleven heathered rich colors, the Masham has added a grayer tone—just a bit more subdued than its Titus counterparts.
