Back Story


This special range is based on a blend of British breeds white wool from our selected supplier farms, combined with 30% Blue-faced Leicester from a group of farms in North Wales.  The added Blue-faced Leicester wool softens this yarn to make comfortable, light and warm garments or will felt well for accessories.  Our Classic British yarns are good for all types of projects and are priced to give value for money and provide an economic alternative to our rarer, special and luxury yarn ranges.

We start with the natural creamy white and then add heathered grey or fawn using mainly Hebridean or Black Welsh Mountain fleece for hte grey or Manx fleece for the fawn.  We then dye the three resulting natural shades in subtle colours, which will all tone with each other.

The lofty woollen spun yarns are designed to give you a classic, traditional knitting experience, in natural and attractive dyed colours, available in 4-ply, DK, Aran and Chunky weights.  Chunky is only available in natural shades at present.

For more detailed information on TENSION/GAUGE for these woollen spun yarns, please refer to the 4-ply and finer, 5-ply guernsey yarns, Double Knitting, Aran and Chunky pages which give data on needles and swatches.

Great yarnReview by YConnell
I love the Classic range, because the colours are gorgeous, the yarns produce lightweight but warm garments, and all for a very competitive price. Who could ask for more? (Posted on 24/02/2014)
