We've made the decision not to take orders for physical products at this time, so that our team can stay at home and we aren't straining resources like the postal service, until clearer guidance is issued by the Scottish or UK government. Thank you for understanding.

100% merino wool

The yarn hasn’t been washed after spinning, which makes it easier to knit at a dense gauge. Because oil is used in the spinning process and, in the greys there may be some excess dye, the water will be quite dirty when washing your project for the first time. I recommend a few rinses but it blooms into an incredible, cushy fabric. Rustic, but soft (although not as smooth and non-itchy as a superwash merino) with a velvety texture that reminds me a little of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter.
