The new Winterburn DK throws the spotlight on another one of the wonderful Yorkshire sheep breeds, the Masham. The Masham has smaller ringlets of fleece than the Wensleydale, but with the added bounce and loft that it gets from its hill-loving male ancestry, the Dalesbred. Winterburn DK has been launched as a gorgeous replacement for Dovestone DK. Spun to the same specifications and yardage, Winterburn DK works perfectly with Dovestone DK patterns and design collections and is available in the same shade range.
