Beautiful thick Hebridean Sheep wool.
The breed of Hebridean sheep is a small primitive type. Their distinctive black to very dark brown fleece.
Sheep were among the first livestock animals to be domesticated. Genetic analysis of different sheep breeds from Europe and Asia suggests that this was not one single event, but rather there were multiple domestication episodes.
Initially sheep were reared primarily for meat, but archaeological evidence suggests that breeding specialisation for ‘secondary’ products such as milk and wool may have started as far back as
4-5000 years ago

~* Nålebinding *~
Also known in English as "knotless netting,single needle knitting," the technique is distinct from crochet in that it involves passing the full length of the working thread through each loop, It also differs from knitting in that lengths must be pieced together during the process of nålebinding, rather than a continuous strand of yarn that can easily be pulled out. Nålbinding will not unravel.

As lover of wool and its remarkable properties Back in the 1953, Edmund Hillary wore a Shetland wool jumper produced by T.M., Adie and Sons of Voe, Scotland under his wool suit . This natural wool, custom-made jumper provided great warmth and insulation, breath-ability, during his historical ascent, when he ascend the top of Everest.

Just love it...waiting for the winter to wear it!!! Superb. Thank you so very much🙏❤️

I love a hat that is loose and this fits PERFECTLY. The colors are gorgeous. And as always, the craftsmanship is superb. Lots of love went into this and it shows.

Beautiful hand made warm and cosy. Wonderful colours and tightly bound thick wool. Excellent.

Beautiful hat, and gorgeous wool. Really lovely seller, photo update as the hat progressed was a nice touch. Highly recommend and I’ll be back for socks 😊

Once again a lovely piece of work from Draecraft. Unna was most helpful in sourcing the naturally dyed colours I asked for and as usual the cap was made from scratch and shipped very quickly. I bought this as a gift and the recipient was delighted, not only with the cap but the beautiful packaging as well. Unna sent regular progress updates and I found Draecraft a delight to deal with. Excellent all round. Highly recommended!
