So many of our favourite bloggers and podcasters have been giving the yarn rave reviews and hope it's going to prove popular on launch day. Set your alarms for 8 am (GMT) on Thursday 28th September!

Here we look at three important aspects of fleece and fibre: consistency/style, colour and animal health.

Consistency varies considerably between different breeds, within the breed and across the animal. We can have Gotland sheep, all of which have lustre longwool, with wide variations of thickness and crimp between different animals and a range of these across the body of an individual.
