Check out our fantastic new undyed yarns!

We have just expanded our undyed yarn range with some really exciting and unusual new yarns. As with all of our undyed yarns these have been carefully selected to be ideal for hand dyeing but look equally gorgeous in their natural colours.

For sheer indulgence and the ultimate in luxury our gorgeous new 100% cashmere yarns are available in a fine laceweight (4 ply), a lovely DK weight and a DK weight silk/cashmere blend. We also have an lambswool/angora/cashmere blend in DK weight combining the softness of lambswool with a touch of luxury from the cashmere and angora to create an irresistible yet affordable yarn.

For those of you who love textured yarns our new silk bouclé yarn is a soft and lustrous DK weight yarn with delicious texture. Our mohair loop yarn is delightfully soft and takes dye beautifully (and it's not itchy!).

We are also delighted to bring you two new superwash Merino chunky yarns. Produced locally our Softspun Merino is a light, warm yarn gently wrapped with a fine nylon binder. The merino bouclé is equally light and warm but has a soft bouclé texture and a fine nylon binder.

Last but certainly not least is our "teddy bear" yarn, so-called because it reminds us of teddy bear fur! Another of our locally produced yarns this gorgeous chunky bouclé yarn is made from the rare Bluefaced Leicester fleece. This is definitely a yarn for snuggling up to!
