Merino is perfect for spinning or felting, it's super soft with a micron count of 23! All our Merino colours are named after the Chilterns and the surrounding area.
During the late Jurassic period (144 million years ago) Portlandian rocks were deposited across what is now Buckinghamshire, when a warm tropical shallow sea was present. The pale orangey-grey limestone that is found in Aylesbury yields many fossils of bivalves, gastropods and ammonites. Used for building material in the surrounding area ammonites can be seen on houses and walls across Bucks, most notably on the 2km wall that lines Hartwell house.
Although we try to match the true colour in the photograph, please be aware that colours on different monitors differ. Come into the shop to see and feel it in the flesh as it were!
