Daughter of a Shepherd - Drover Sock

Availability: Translation missing: en.general.icons.icon_check_circle icon 10 in stock

We are very excited to have Daughter of a Shepherd's new sock yarn!

Drover is a worsted spun 

British wool spun by John Arbon Textiles with a high twist and pinch of nylon for strength. The same gorgeous depth of colour as other Daughter of a Shepherd bases but blended especially for hard wearing socks or any other accessories and garments that require a bit more strength. 

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.

Available in three natural and un-dyed fleece shades:

Whernside; dark, Hebridean + Zwartbles
; mid-grey, Hebridean, Zwartbles + Exmoor Blueface
; light-grey, Hebridean, Zwartbles + Exmoor Blueface

Please note: For environmental reasons and to preserve the natural lustre of the fibre they do not scour after spinning, so it is important to wash swatches to achieve a correct gauge measurement with this yarn.

We always recommend hand washing in order to prolong the life of your knitwear.
