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.
