Stash Flash: North Ronaldsday Wool

My dear friend Joan was in Scotland visiting friends this year, and went to the Orkney Islands, which are right at the northern most tip of Scotland.

Scotland is well-known for its wool and sheep.  The one of the Orkneys that Joan visited, had it’s own sort of wool.  North Ronaldsday Wool.  She brought back a skein of their Aran weight yarn for me to play with.  I am quite grateful that she did!

IMG_3330It’s beautiful yarn, I must say.  Lovey and sheepy.  And I have a pattern picked out for it on Ravelry called bramble leaf.  It seems perfect.

You can order this yarn online and can learn more about, too, while you are there. 

And, if you are interested in seeing this yarn in my Ravelry stash, take a look here.
