Coming on Tuesday the 30th of April!

We are excited to bring you Daughter of a Shepherd's newest 4ply, Ammonite! A thoroughly modern marl that knits into a soft melange fabric. This yarn has a beautiful sheen to it, and is rustic but soft. It's beautiful on its' own, or held doubled with silk mohair, or another yarn.

Compatible and interchangeable with Daughter of a Shepherd Heritage 4ply and Brume 4ply yarns for colourwork.


Rachel's passion for the importance of provenance, collaborating with both shepherds, mills, designers and weavers has been a wonder to watch unfold over the last few years. We love her, her yarn and her story. See more of her story on our youtube channel as well as our Instagram TV channel.

We also stock lots of other Daughter of a Shepherd yarns. You can see the whole collection here
