Tamar Lustre Yarn

Tamar Lustre Yarn

Our beautiful semi-worsted lustre yarn is spun from the fleeces of fine British rare breeds, including Teeswater, Wensleydale and Leicester Longwool.  The natural grey of the Leicester Longwool makes asubtle base shade in silvery mid grey.  To give some body and bulk, we base the lustre fibres on a grounding of 30% Cornish Mule, which also has lustre as well as additional softness.

Tamar has the sheen, shimmer and drape which links it to its namesake river.  We have then chosen a series of subtle complementary colours to dye over the base - to create a wonderful shade palette, named for other Cornish rivers.

  • Morwenstowe Socks

    The Morwenstowe Socks are a pair of two-colour socks featuring a lace and cable design, with instructions in three sizes.

    These socks are worked from the top down with a heel flap construction. The lace and cable motif is mirrored on each sock, so you will end up with a symmetrical pair.

Both the foot and leg length are adjustable, so we recommend periodically trying on these socks as you go, to ensure the best fit. This pattern assumes you’re familiar with sock construction.
