Yarn review: Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, Hebridean Aran

This week I have a yarn in my hands that I’m so excited to talk to you about.  Firstly, it’s local to me. Secondly, funds from the sale of this yarn support a local charity. And finally,  this yarn is a by product of local efforts to manage the environment to support wildlife.  I LOVE that the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust have turned a by product of their conservation efforts in to a commodity that supports their flock.  There is a lovely section on Ravelry explaining how the Trust use their flock to support conservation, and you can buy the yarn from their online shop.  For today, all that’s left is to leave you with the yarn stats.
