If you've been here for a while, you'll know that the launch of Beacons this summer was actually the second launch of Beacons we've had. The original blend was a little different, and the last few skeins are in the moving sale today.
A good DK yarn needs purpose and structure, and Beacons has that in abundance. a smooth, soft and springy 3-ply yarn, this is a timeless favourite.
Our Polwarth comes from Dunbar Island, part of the Falkland Islands, famed for the snow white superfine fleece. These sheep produce a long, smooth fibre that has excellent stitch definition and soaks up dye like a sponge.
The Polwarth is lifted by some Romney, sourced from a flock in Wiltshire. We chose this lustrous longwool to add structure and some complexity to the blend.
A note on Kettle: This dyelot has a small amount of variation between skeins due to the dyeing process, so we recommend alternating skeins to avoid any pooling.
A note on Blazer: these skeins are slightly underweight (around 45g)
Light DK/Sport, 135m per 50g
