New yarns

This is where we put our very newest yarns and ideas! All yarns are also listed by yarn type or origin, but here you can see the latest ideas in one place. They are normally in 50g balls, unless otherwise described on the Details tab on each individual product page.

Recent additions include:

- a limited edition of lace-weight alpaca yarns in natural white, pale blue and pale pink sold singly or extra value gift and project packs

- new suppliers to the Natural Yarn Company: Kilnwood Alpcacs and UK Alpaca

- a special edition of woollen spun Blacker Swan chunky yarn with softness and bulk in natural ivory

- pure natural shades of Rare Breeds of pure Castlemilk Moorit, mid grey North Ronaldsay in DK, Teeswater in a lacy 4-ply, and also the St. Kilda blended pale fawn laceweight made from Boreray, Soay and Shetland wools

- lovely soft worsted spun natural Jacob yarns in white, mid and dark Jacob colours in both DK and 4-ply

- two new dyed shades in Guernsey yarns in slate and navy

-a lovely plum over-dyed DK pure Gotland, along with darker lavender version - great for shadows or double knitting

You will also find two new natural shades in mushroom and dark brown, spun from some of the very few coloured sheep on the Falklands Islands, only available from us as they are not quite as fine as the Swan Inlet white wools. These shades are available in both DK and 4-ply.
