Our St. Kilda lace weight yarn is a unique and rare homage to the Scottish archipelago and World Heritage site on the outer edges of the Hebrides. The islands’ native Boreray and Soay sheep are two of the oldest and rarest of all British breeds, so there is only enough wool to make a limited amount each year. We think it’s one of the best yarns for lace knitting.
These fibres are eked out by blending into a Shetland base to create a beautifully delicate and textured yarn with plenty of bounce. Our St. Kilda has a real grip, so it is exquisitely suited to lace knitting and textured shawls.
We hope you will find your St. Kilda lace yarn a joy to work with and wear. For more details on St. Kilda there is also a dedicated website, www.kilda.org.uk
