Titus is a superior quality natural blend of Yorkshire Wool and UK Alpaca with the feel, fluffiness, and slightly lustrous and velvety texture of undyed alpaca. Wensleydales have long, ringlet-like fleece which creates a fine, silky yarn with a soft and fuzzy 'halo'. This superb British Wool is manufactured in natural undyed and solid colours. This yarn is suitable for hand and machine knitting, and gossamer crochet.

FYI • The Black Wensleydale is a rare breed. There are less than 88 black ewe lambs registered in UK. Their colour varies from Silver to Jet Black or Charcoal Grey • The first ever Wensleydale was call Bluecap and was born in 1839 in the hamlet of East Appleton, five miles from Bedale in North Yorkshire. The breed didn't get a name for 37 years until 1876, when it was required for classes it entered at the Yorkshire Show. - Reference: Ann Kingstone, Born & Bred Yorkshire Sheep.

Sir Titus Salt was a Leeds born wool manufacturer, politician, and philanthropist who built Salts Mill, a large textile mill on the outskirts of Shipley, which became then the world famous village of Saltaire. Now, Salts Mill is an art gallery, shopping center, and restaurant complex in Saltaire, West Yorkshire.
