Item details

Shetland/Castlemilk Moorit 4ply 50grms - Beige - 100% Pure New Wool

This soft yarn has been spun at the Natural Fibre Company in Cornwall using personally selected fleeces from pedigree Shetland sheep that graze on conservation grade land at an Essex Wildlife Trust coastal site and CastleMilk Moorit sheep based at a large country estate. White Shetland sheep fleeces were blended with Mid Brown Castlemilk Moorit fleeces at the mill prior to spinning and the small flecks of brown wool create a pleasing effect in the finished yarn. It knits up well using size 3.75mm - 3.25mm (UK 9 & 10) needles). Average tension is 24-26 sts to 10cm. Ideal for hats, scarves, mittens, cushions, sweaters etc.

The second photo shows a small teddy knitted from the yarn. Kits to make the teddy will be available in the shop soon.

Please Note: This yarn is also available in 75grm and 100grm hanks priced at £7.25 and £9.50. The 75grm hanks are ideal for hats, mittens etc. Please choose the total weight you require from the drop down box. If you require more than 100grms please adjust the number of hanks required. Quantities of 100grms or above will be supplied in primarily in 100grm hanks.

In order to keep your yarn looking nice, always wash gently by hand using warm water and wool wash liquid. Do not rub or use agitation. Rinse in same temperature water then squeeze out excess water by rolling in a towel. Dry flat away from direct heat.

If you have any questions, please contact me.
