St. Kilda Laceweight

St. Kilda Laceweight

Blacker’s St. Kilda 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.  These fibres are hand blended together with Shetland 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.
