Beacons

A good DK yarn needs purpose and structure, and Beacons has that in abundance. Our reimagined blend is softer than ever, so perfect for next to the skin projects.

This deliciously round 3-fold, worsted spun yarn shows clear stitch definition and loves texture and cabled stitches and the palette of 36 shades includes bold and punchy solids, subtle heathers and magical marls.

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. Adding some depth and texture to the Polwarth is some long and lustrous Romney and stunningly rich Hebridean in Cinder, our grey base.

Climate positive

1.48kg. That's the CO2 equivalent footprint of each skein. In calculating this, we've been our own harshest critic - it's definitely a lot less than this, but we still offset 3kg for every one. So far, we've removed over 70,000kg of CO2E from the atmosphere.

1 skein = 1 tree

We've partnered with Ecologi to plant a tree for every single skein we sell. So far, we've planted over 15,000.
