Item details

Listing is for one skein but more than one is available. Free stitch marker with every yarn order.

100% British wool, ethically produced and fully traceable in a laceweight single. Not superwash treated; simply spun in Yorkshire from fleece obtained from named farms in the UK. 25% Masham lambswool, 25% Bluefaced Leicester, 25% Romney lambswool, 25% British white alpaca.

Woollen spun by a small independent mill in East Yorkshire and hand dyed in East Yorkshire. using professional acid dyes manufactured in South Yorkshire to produce colours that are a delight to work with and to use.

Base: Fabulous Four fingering. A unique blend that I designed with my local mill. This combines the lustre of Masham lambswool with the softness of Bluefaced Leicester and British white alpaca. Soft but still woolly with a slight halo. Will soften on use, during blocking and during use. Unlikely to pill.

Colourway: Halloween

Woollen spinning has been rather overtaken by worsted spinning and is rarely done in the UK. Woollen spun yarn has more loft and more bounce and gives a liveliness to your projects that you don't get with worsted spun yarn.

100g skeins with at least 700 yards of yarn - but the mill tells me the skeins have extra yarn so may be up to 900 yards.

Dyed in small batches using professional acid milling dyes. The dyes are fully exhausted in the dye bath then the skeins are washed and rinsed until no colour remains in the rinsing water. However, to keep the colours looking as fresh as possible, hand wash your finished item in lukewarm water using a mild wool wash product with a slightly acid pH. Do not soak. A slight amount of colour bleed may occur in the first few washes so always wash separately.

Even when a colourway is repeated, and even when dyed in the same batch variations may occur so alternating skeins for big projects is advisable.

    Kathryn, this yarn is so gorgeous. I'll just love my proper English "jumper" when I finish.
