We’ve nearly made it two consecutive days without rain here in West Wales (if you don’t count the hail storm this morning...) and so it seems time to tentatively start thinking about summer knits. Lighter layers to both work on during the summer months when you don’t want a lap full of a chunky cabled jumper, and to wear on cooler evenings. 

That’s where our lace-weight yarns Number 1 and Cairngorm come in! Currently on sale whilst we make room in the mill for the new yarn we’re spinning, read on to find out a bit more about the yarn as well as some pattern inspiration. 

Number 1 is our classic laceweight, spun delicately to reflect the stunning tones of the Shetland sheep that grow the wool. Sourced from three farms including our own here in West Wales, each heathery tone contains up to seven individual shades of fibre.

Designed to compliment the classic range of undyed shades in Number 1, Cairngorm is crafted from pure Romney Lambswool sourced from a single Wiltshire flock.

Both 350 metres / 383 per 50g skein
