Winterburn DK throws the spotlight on another one of our wonderful Yorkshire sheep breeds, the Masham. The Masham has smaller ringlets of fleece than the Wensleydale but with added bounce and loft that it gets from its hill-loving male ancestry, the Dalesbred. In fact, female ‘gimmer’ -or lambs- were considered so pretty that farmers would tie ribbons in their fleece before taking them to market and Sheep Fairs which continues to this day in the North Yorkshire town of Masham, from which this sheep breed gets its name.

okay to good

I had hoped it was going to be fuller, and my swatch did show some additional fulling after blocking, but it still seems a little skimpy. I'm about 1/3 the way through a raglan sleeve top-down sweater. Some problems with "thick and thin," but I've seen worse. I do like the cranberry color (not its actual name). The plies were a little loosely spun. I was pleased that it spit-joined nicely. Overall, I would buy it again.
