‘Poldale Silk ‘ is a 4ply weight knitting yarn made by Wooltops. There’s lots of twist in the yarn to make it more hardwearing for knitting socks, This yarn is also suitable for garments and accessories.
The wool comes from the Falklands from Corriedale sheep which have been crossed with Polwarth for additional softness – hence ‘Poldale’. Some darker fibres have been blended to give a natural silvery grey with a subtle marled effect. 15% mulberry silk has been blended which gives the yarn a sheen.
Poldale Silk is available in one natural shade.
