Natural blends of varying breeds
Zwartbles is a breed of sheep which originates from The Netherlands. It is a natural brown shade. The fleece is bulky with excellent crimp which makes it superb for felting. The fibre is 100-120mm long and a fineness of around 30-32 Microns.
A FLAME TREE NOTEBOOK. Beautiful and luxurious the journals combine high-quality production with magnificent art. Perfect as a gift, and an essential personal choice for writers, notetakers, travellers, students, poets and diarists. Features a wide range of well-known and modern artists, with new artworks published throughout the year.
BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED. The highly crafted covers are printed on foil paper, embossed then foil stamped, complemented by the luxury binding and rose red end-papers. The covers are created by our artists and designers who spend many hours transforming original artwork into gorgeous 3d masterpieces that feel good in the hand, and look wonderful on a desk or table.
PRACTICAL, EASY TO USE. Flame Tree Notebooks come with practical features too: a pocket at the back for scraps and receipts; two ribbon markers to help keep track of more than just a to-do list; robust ivory text paper, printed with lines; and when you need to collect other notes or scraps of paper the magnetic side flap keeps everything neat and tidy.
THE ARTIST. The Royal School of Needlework is known worldwide for exceptional technical tuition in the art of hand embroidery; the conservation and restoration of historic embroidered textiles and prestigious embroidery commissions, created in its Embroidery Studio at Hampton Court Palace. The large Wall of Wool in vibrant rainbow colours is invaluable to the expert studio embroiderers who can use it to match the textiles they are restoring or conserving perfectly.
THE FINAL WORD. As William Morris said, “Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”
A combination of Old World and New World! This yarn has excellent body and spring with a wonderful “crunch factor” that you need to feel to believe! This is a great sweater yarn that feels wonderful against the skin. Great for colourwork, stranded knitting, and has fantastic stitch definition!
