Specialist and rare breeds

Specialist and rare breeds

Here you will find yarns from rare and special or unusual breeds.

Many are classified as rare or endangered and listed by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. This means they may be occasional and limited editions, so grab them when you can! We hope to add to these and help threatened breeds to remain economic through fleece sales. They are normally in 50g balls, unless otherwise described on the Details tab on each individual product page.

Please refer to our 4-ply and finer, 5-ply guernsey yarns, Double Knitting, Aran and Chunky pages for information on tension and gauge.
