Summer Ices: Hand-dyed BFL 100g - Sloe Gin
Sometimes friends like to give me their fleeces! This is a one-off run of locally sourced BFL which has been spun in Yorkshire and hand-dyed here at home in small batches. We named the range after the huge range of ice-cream flavours and colours for sale on a visit to Innerleithen, not far away. The yarn is everything you would expect of BFL: drapey, soft and lustrous.
One of my 'happy tasks' of autumn is bottling up last year's sloe gin, and picking new sloes to make gin for the next year. Sloe Gin ice cream is wonderfully tasty - tried first at the ice cream shop in Portsoy. Delicious.
