|My old Man - Ross with Tui - his 'wool truck' dog|
|Shearing time at Te Kowhai - the fibre from that sheep is spun into the Naked Cheviot here at Skeinz|
|It's a joy to spin - it was this Cheviot that got me back into hand spinning|
|Skeinz Naked Cheviot - all spun and ready to go.|
We have deliberately kept the spinning of the Naked Cheviot as close to 'hand spinning' as we can. It's just a two fold twist and constructed as you would if you were spinning for the classical Aran jumper. Cheviot is lively, strong and warm and has a beautiful pearl like lustre. It also wears very well, so if you would like to take the yarn full circle and something that would be worn on the farm - then the Naked Cheviot is the yarn to knit it in!
