Our beautiful semi-worsted lustre yarn is spun from the fleeces of fine British rare breeds, including Teeswater, Wensleydale and Leicester Longwool.  The natural grey of the Leicester Longwool makes asubtle base shade in silvery mid grey.  To give some body and bulk, we base the lustre fibres on a grounding of 30% Cornish Mule, which also has lustre as well as additional softness.

Tamar has the sheen, shimmer and drape which links it to its namesake river.  We have then chosen a series of subtle complementary colours to dye over the base – to create a wonderful shade palette, named for other Cornish rivers.

Beautiful yarn

Using Tamar DK wool is a pleasure. The softness and stitch detail I very much appreciated. I like to support British wool suppliers if at all possible.

Gorgeous wool

I purchased the wool with a kit. I haven’t started it yet but the wool has exceeded my expectations, beautiful colour and feel.
