‘MORECAMBE’ is a British Blue Faced Leicester & Alpaca DK wool. The Blue Faced Leicester wool comes from farms in the Yorkshire Dales and has been carefully graded on our farm. This wool has been blended with British grown alpaca and spun in Yorkshire to produce a soft, springy double knitting yarn.
This knitting wool is a blend of 70% Yorkshire Blue Faced Leicester wool worsted spun with 30% UK alpaca.
This yarn knits to standard double knitting patterns for wool, (but always knit a tension swatch). There are approximately 125m per 50g. The yarn is sold in 50g balls.
‘Whitbarrow’ is an Alpaca Fingering weight yarn. We have combined alpaca with Merino wool and silk to produce a Fingering knitting yarn in an exclusive blend which has been spun for us in the UK. This luxurious Fingering weight knitting wool is a blend of 45% Peruvian baby alpaca, 35% superfine, organic Falklands Merino wool and 20% Mulberry silk.
Whitbarrow Alpaca fingering yarn has been dyed in the Scottish Borders in a wide range of solid colours. Charcoal is a very dark grey colour.
This yarn is super-soft and is ideal for knitting shawls, scarves. It is light-weight yet cozy and is great for knitting tops that you will wear next to your skin.
This yarn knits to 4ply, Fingering or Sock weight knitting patterns, (but always knit a tension swatch). There are approximately 400m per 100g. The yarn is sold in 100g hanks. We also have a few mini skeins which are at least 30g and may have one join. If you would like us to ball your yarn for you, please make a note on the order.
