Back Story

Details

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 two subtle base shades in silvery or 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 and shimmer and drape which links it to its namesake river.  We have then chosen a series of complementary colours to dye over the bases, sometimes using the exhaust bath to make the paler version - to create a wonderful shade palette, named for other Cornish rivers.
