First of all, thank you for investigating Crafty Dog Craft Kits, because once you start making, you are keeping a traditional craft alive!

 

This BALLYMENA BALDRICK skein comprises:

77g/16yards of bulky wheel-plyed yarn containing

Chocolate alpaca from Ballymena Alpaca

White alpaca from Baldrick at the Dorset Good LIfe Farm 

There is also a vintage skittle which can be used as a Nostepinne to wind the skein into a centre pull ball. 

Yarn and Nostepinne come in a salvaged textile project bag. 

Instructions on using the Nostepinne to wind wool can be found on IGTV @a_tail_of_yarn 'Winding Wool'  - please contact me for further information on this simple traditional method of winding wool!

 

This yarn can be combined with more yarn of your choice to complete a project such as the Crochet bowl or Woven Wall Hanging - more projects available on the blog 'FREE STUFF'. 

 

Crafty Dog Crafting Tips - Whatever project I am working on, my ethos is to enjoy and respect the yarn that I choose to work with, whether it is commercially produced, rescued from a charity shop, unravelled from an old garment, or hand spun, so if you feel that a different hook size or needle size would work better with the yarn of your choice, then feel free to change to get the gauge and texture you like.

 

So – yarn at the ready, here we go, let the creating commence!
