New Highland Sustainable DK Yarn
100% Untreated Non-Superwash Highland Wool DK now in a special range of colors
Very happy to have this rustic DK added to our yarn bases:)) It is a mix of Corriedale and Merino wool completely untreated and sourced from sheep who roam the Peruvian highlands making a durable, woolly fabric.
It is spun by the mill to support local farmers and to promote sustainability in the region. It has a soft but rustic handle and we have dyed it in soft neutral colors which we think works perfectly with the tone of the wool.
The ideal yarn for cardigans, sweaters, colorwork, and shawls.
Semi-solid Pick and Mix
We have always wanted to offer a pick and mix service but it was difficult to do without more hands-on deck. It is important to us to get a quick turn-around time on your order. We are delighted to say that it is now possible to let you pick your favorite base then the colorway of your choice and we will dye it the next day and ship with tracking within the week all for our flat rate postage of €8 worldwide.
This is a wonderful service for those who have researched a project, know their base and color and want to receive same batch yarns to begin making. We also have 10% off 3 skeins or more in this area to help out the cost of sweater quantities.
Over the past two years we have focused on producing a unique publication twice a year to showcase what inspires our colors, patterns you can make with hand-dyed yarn and the values that we like to live by.
Full of rural photography, patterns, recipes, and interviews it is a much-loved magazine for those who enjoy slow living and appreciate the moment.
We are currently out of Issue 1 but have Issue 2 and 3 available here.
Yarn Developments at the Studio...
We have been working on a third non-superwash Aran base over the past few months to sit beside Hinterland our BFL/Gotland blend fingering weight, and our new base Highland DK. We have been sampling different yarns from mills around Europe to see what would work.
And we found it, a wonderful ecological merino base in two weights sock/fingering and DK/worsted. Now the palette needs to be finalized which should be this month and then we will get our labels printed and start to knit! I’m looking forward to sitting down and taking the time to knit a winter cardigan with this yarn, have some tea and enjoy each stitch.
Hinterland Fingering Weight
One of our popular non-superwash rustic bases is Hinterland a fingering weight BFL/Gotland blend from small UK farms. We take great care in handling and dyeing this base, like all non-superwash bases time is important in the process.
We have a special palette created for this base as it has a natural gray
color before dyeing. Click here to view.
Currently, we have 10% off 3 skeins or more when purchasing to help
with sweater quantities or just so you can try different colorways.
