This is a yarn with a difference, spun from a blend of 50% Falkland merino wool, 30% Cheviot wool and 20% recycled wool. It is less soft than standard merino or bluefaced leicester but still lovely and springy and warm. It could be described as a heavy sock weight or light sport weight.

This skein has been dip dyed and hand painted with pale aqua sea blues and greys.

Approx. 350 Metres Per 100g
Needle/Hook Size: 3.5mm-4mm

Additional information

Weight 100 kg

Wharfedale Woolworks began in 2010, when I took redundancy from ma dull office job and opened an online shop, originally offering hand-dyed yarns and fibres. After completing a Masters degree and taking on a new job I no longer had time to dye on a regular basis, so took a break for a couple of years. This year, after reducing working hours for a better work-life balance I am now re-opening and offering hand dyed yarns, handspun art yarns, prepared fibres in different formats for spinning and also some luxury hand knits and woven textile wall hangings.

I am autistic and suffer from fibromyalgia and depression.  I’m also awaiting assessment for ADHD, so all of my fibre related activities are highly therapeutic and restorative. I take great pride in my work and I value my time, so items are priced to account fairly for this. I hope you gain as much enjoyment from my products as I did from their creation.
