Lace & 3-ply

Lace & 3-ply

Here you will find our finest yarns!  By specification, but also by fibre, since one requires the other ...

Our selection includes Blue-faced Leicester when available, our very special St. Kilda lace blend and occasionally other varieties, according to availability.  Some of our leaner 4-ply yarns are also suitable for lace work, and we have included the Mohair Blends and Lyonesse 4-ply here for this reason.

Please note that yardage and tension varies considerably with finer yarns, due both to the technical styles and also the type of fibre.

Please also see our advice page for further information on gauge/tension, needles and hook sizes, etc.

  • Mohair Blends 4-ply

    Adding mohair to a yarn enhances the effect of dyes, while increasing both durability and softness.  It is well suited to making garments and other accessories. We have chosen Hebridean and Manx wool for our blends to make the most of the contrast with the silky white mohair. Learn More
  • Cornish Garden 3-ply limited edition Birthday yarn

    For our 14th Birthday, we have combined some soft fine and rare English Merinos with a few other special things. The yarn has 40% blended white and fawn Merino with Romney, plus 17% fawn and grey Shetland, 26% blue-faced Leicester and 17% recycled noils from our mill. The Merino and Shetland provide natural colour and the Shetland reduces the Merino/Romney bulk. Then the Blue-faced Leicester adds lustre to enhance the dye shades as well as reducing bulk further and adding drape. The noils add texture and interest to both natural and dyed shades and are more environmentally sustainable than ahimsa silk or bought-in nepps. The resulting yarn is a warm, pale fawn-grey, happy to take a complementary darker brown-grey and four bright dye shades for a cheerful birthday palette. The noils and fine fibre make for a machine spun yarn with a natural handle and a pleasing slightly uneven style. Learn More
