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.
"A beautiful blend of Falkland Islands wool (80%) and Mulberry Silk (20%) creates perfect stitch definition with beautiful drape and sheen. Exquisite to knit, Exquisite to wear."
400m/437yrds per 100g hank
Suggested needle: 3.25mm. Tension: 10cmx4in square, 36 rows x 28 st.
Looking for something a little fancy? This blend of super soft wool and classic silk texture is great for next-to-skin projects. What it lacks in strength, it makes up for in luxury. Perfect for any 4ply garment or shawl, although we wouldn't recommend it for long-lasting socks. Combine it with another fun coloured 4ply to make some really luscious marled DK projects (I'm looking at you, Stephen West!).
We usually don't stock Mulberry silk because it's not as animal-friendly as Tussah Silk, but we thought we'd add this to our repertoire because it supports WYS which is a local (and ethical) brand! Feel free to message us if you have any questions. :)Owing to photography and screen calibration the colour reproduction is matched as closely as possible to the yarn.
