British Wool

Welcome to our new range of wool – it’s a 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.

You can read more about our British Wool here.

*We are currently out of stock of Shetland Dark Brown until end Sept/early Oct. Apologies for any inconvenience*

You can now choose to have your yarn in a hank or a ball!

Our Great Balls of Yarn are beautifully wound so you can start knitting straight away. Instead of spending your valuable time winding them yourself when you could be starting on your latest project, or having the worry of tangling up while you’re knitting, these balls are expertly and beautifully wound by us, for you.

Each hank/ball is around 200g (and 130m) and is best knit on 10mm-15mm needles.

If you choose to stick with hanks of yarn, most of our customers find it easier to wind them before knitting. Snip the ties holding the hank together and you’ll find the end of the yarn. Pop it over the back of a chair, a door handle or your knees and wind into a ball, before starting your knitting.
