Welcome to our Super Chunky British Wool, available in four natural shades and so beautiful to knit with.
Our British Wool comes from two types of sheep – our Natural White is a Blue Faced Leicester yarn, and our three darker shades are Shetland. Each just as tactile, but the BFL has a slightly softer finish. BFL is a little bit more silky with a very slight sheen whereas Shetland is squishy and bouncy. Those descriptions are probably true for the sheep, too!
The wool knits up beautifully giving a natural finish and is so soft to the touch. It also has a really gorgeous evocative smell which is super comforting to knit with and wear.
We have made a pledge as part of Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back campaign to support British farmers and stop the waste of this beautiful product. You can find out more by watching the episode here.
Each hank is 200g and 130m long. Available in BFL White, Shetland Grey, Shetland Moorit & Shetland Dark Brown.
All of our British super chunky wool can be used with any of our current Super Chunky Patterns, although we are releasing a range purely devoted to this wool, starting with our Cosy Cable Cardi – it’s just perfect to be knit with this wool. Rustic, Natural, Pure.
