Yarns by Breed

People come to us from all over the world for our range of breed specific crochet and knitting wool yarns.  For over a decade we have been tracking down these individual British breeds – mostly from farms in the UK along with our special links to producers based in the Falklands.  Some of these breeds are scarce, others are more common and could be found just a few miles away from your home.  All are wonderfully unique and make for some of the best crochet yarn or knitting wool you can buy.

Thanks guys, my order has arrived safely – pretty quick considering we’re in lockdown and NZ Post is pretty crap!  Can’t wait to start my second Maiden.

The birthday yarn palette of colours is right up my alley, I really like it.  I am imagining a yoked sweater that subtly combines the colours or a fair isle vest.  Just lovely, looking forward to ordering.
