Commercial blend yarn from 2 young farmers near Gorebridge and Crossgates, Scotland. The yarn is a mix of Suffolk, Texel and Shetland. The market for commercial yarn in the UK is under-explored and farmers routinely burn the fleeces as it is quicker and cheaper than sending them to wool cooperatives. We buy the fleeces from 2 farms close to us and turn it into yarn, for every kilo we buy, we pay enough to not only cover costs but also make a profit. Yarn has a value and we want to prove that.
This yarn will surprise you by its softness and can be worn against the skin very easily. It also has great stitch definition and works well for cabling or colour-work.
A range of colours are available, inspired by the colours of Scotland that are around us every day. We create each individual colour in our own home and only use British made dyes to reduce our carbon footprint.
Around 217m per 100g. 23 stitches per 10cm with 4mm.
