Here's some more!  The first part focussed on designing mainly for our Natural Fibre Company customers, so here we look more at how we go about designing the yarns for Blacker Yarns, and the many difficult choices we have to make.  Above you see our "typical Blacker" individual breed yarns, made from carefully sourced fleeces and in several specifications.
