Marie Wallin British Breeds, color chestnut.

British Breeds is an exclusive blend of wool from four British sheep breeds: Bluefaced Leicester, Exmoor Horn, Wensleydale, and Zwartbles, and the special properties of this yarn come from the special fiber types. Bluefaced Leicester and Exmoor Horn for softness, Wensleydale for strength and lustre, Zwarbles for springiness. The yarn is spun in Devon, England by John Arbon. First, the Bluefaced Leicester, Exmoor Horn and Wensleydale fibers are blended and dyed, then finally spun along with the undyed Zwartbles fibres into a beautifully heathered yarn.

British Breeds is a 4-ply worsted-spun yarn, and the wonderful stitch definition makes it very well suited for colorwork and cables.
