Named after Elinor Dashwood from Sense and Sensibility this fibre for this yarn is a natural oatmeal colour with a gentle sheen. This has been over dyed giving subtle and beautiful pinks and yellows which change in the light. The long fibres of the Bluefaced Leicester sheep give the yarn strength and durability as well as drape.
