"Re:treat. With a roving quality and a soft twist that glides off the needles, Re:treat creates smooth, light fabrics with a luxurious silky texture. Re:treat proudly bears the new British Wool logo, a guarantee that it is British to the core from sheep to showroom. The wool selected to make Re:treat comes from an exciting cross breed of Bluefaced Leicester - famous in British hand knitting for its soft handle - and Kerry Hill – renown for its distinctive markings and clean white fleece.
Our craftsmen have used all of their expertise to transform the Bluefaced Kerry Hill fleece into one of West Yorkshire Spinners’ most beautiful and exciting new yarns. Spun with skill and care, Re:treat proudly flies the flag for the unbeatable quality of British yarn today.

Please note this is a 'single', meaning that it has not been plied. If you are casting on and finding it is breaking- it's probably because you are twisting the yarn in a way that is basically 'un spinning' it! Try a different cast on method and you should be good to go. :)
Reared, Sheared and Spun in Yorkshire, this beautiful British Wool is a favourite. Especially because of all the beautiful shades of colours it comes in! by West Yorkshire Spinners.
