    Recommended needle & hook size: 2.0mm - 3.75mm (always check the pattern)

    Aysgarth is 100% lustrous British Wensleydale wool. Its appearance is similar to the shine and the halo of mohair and it feels like a warm woolly hug. Seriously, you won't be able to stop stroking this yarn! It comes from sheep who have amazing long curly locks and it is a hand dyer's favourite for its colour uptake. The yarn is worsted spun and plied, and has a draping handle, making it ideal for statement pieces. Remember to always block your projects for the best outcome. Please note that this is a non-superwash yarn, so it can be felted if you want.
  • Close up of skeins in zesty green with pops of yellow and purple Skeins of Nene 4 Ply in zesty greens with pops of yellow and purple
    We created this colourway partly out of longing for summer after the rather wet and cold spring of 2021, and partly due to the kids bringing that oh-so-annoying phrase out of hibernation since we’ve been coming out of lockdown and travelling further afield! This colourway is moderately variegated and that makes it a lot of fun to work with because almost every stitch is a different colour. Textured patterns will show up in this yarn, alternatively, use it for something simple and let the colours do the work!

    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)

    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!
