With a magic combination of superwash wool and organic cotton, Spud & Chloe Sweater is a really versatile 10ply worsted weight yarn that is soft but durable for family friendly use. Great for jumpers, blankets, beanies and just about anything you can imagine. A great range of happy colours too!We love it for its softness, breathability and strength.
Blue Sky Fibres is a US yarn company based in Minneapolis that was born out of a love for the gorgeous fleece of alpacas. With a desire to bring premium organic yarns to creators everywhere – Blue Sky Fibres was born.
This unique yarn is a blend of 3 breeds of sheep that are local to John Arbon's mill in Devon - Exmoor Blueface, Devon Bluefaced Leicester and Devon Wensleydale. The Exmoor Blueface brings a wonderful springy nature to the yarn, the Bluefaced Leicester lends its outstandingly soft handle and lustre, whilst the Wensleydale adds its qualities of a beautiful golden sheen and fineness of fibre.
Each shade is inspired by the work of renowned 19th century French tapestry artist Jean Lurcat. There are 14 in total and each is made up of up to 5 blended pre-dyed fibre tops to create a rich melange of colour in the spun yarn. It is lovingly worsted spun in Devon by John Arbon and is truly incomparable to anything else. The colour depth and subtle shades within each colourway is a thing of beauty. This is only matched by the gorgeous handle and joy of knitting (and crocheting) this beautiful British yarn. Garments and accessories will stand the test of time whilst keeping you warm and looking amazing.

This new Scheepjes gem is a combination of superfine merino gradient yarn that is unique and beautiful in its own right. With the unmatched silky softness of its sister yarn, Merino Soft.
