  • Fibre Content: 100% Superwash Bluefaced Leicester
    Specification: DK weight - 225m / 100g
    Fibre: Sourced in the UK
    Processing: Spun in Peru, dyed in the UK
    Recommended needle & hook size: 3.5mm - 4.5mm (always check the pattern)
    Description:
    This is a smooth, worsted-spun and plied yarn with a lot of lustre and great bounce! The Bluefaced Leicester breed produces wool that is strong and still manages to be next-to-skin soft, making it ideal for a wide range of projects. This yarn will work fantastically in hats, mittens, jumpers, and big cosy shawls. It wears well over time and pills very little. The stitch definition is excellent, making it suitable for beautiful stocking stitch, textured knit-purl patterns, thick and squishy brioche, and well-defined cables.

  • Fibre Content: 100% Jacob wool
    Specification: 4 Ply / Fingering weight - 175m / 50g
    Fibre: Sourced from Worcestershire, UK
    Processing: Spun in Ceridigion, Wales, dyed in the UK
    Recommended needle & hook size: 2.5mm - 3.75mm (always check the pattern)
    Description:
    This is a light and airy woollen-spun and plied yarn from a single farm in Worcestershire. Jacob sheep are one of the oldest native breeds in the UK. They are striking in their appearance, with white and brown fleeces and multiple horns! We sorted the fleeces by hand, separating the white from the brown. We have natural and dyed shades available. The wool is hardwearing and makes lightweight, warm garments that soften beautifully with age. Use it for hats, mittens, jumpers, and house socks and slippers. The yarn is made up of 2 plies, which lends itself well to lace patterns and stranded colourwork. This yarn hasn’t been superwash-treated, so it will felt if you want it to. This also makes it an excellent candidate for steeking, if you’re brave enough!

  • Wavewalking Socks came about when I wanted to knit a simple cabled sock that would show up well in a hand dyed variegated yarn. Being a boat-dweller, the pattern reminded me that I am always walking on waves! Choose your own favourite hand dyed yarn and clothe your feet in cosy colours :-) The socks knit up quickly with the interest of the eyelet cable to keep you going. You can choose whether to have a plain cuff or make a feature of the eyelet ribbing. And the best thing is, the pattern is written toe up and top down, so you can make these no matter what your preferred method is!

    We are delighted to offer our very own British rare breed wool yarn. The Jacob sheep is very distinctive, with horns and a spotted fleece. This wool comes from a flock in Worcestershire, near the Malverns. The sheep are sheared by hand and registered with the Jacob Sheep Society. It's a proper woolly yarn for the wool enthusiast. Becci has dyed a range of gentle, complementary shades reminiscent of the landscape the Jacob sheep inhabit. If you've never worked with Jacob wool before, send us a message, we'd be happy to send you a sample card, free of charge.
