Undyed

Undyed

Our customers tell us that colour is one of the most important considerations when buying yarn,so we've gathered together all our yarns in colour groups here. It is easy to shop for all the tones of a single colour by selecting from the menu below.

As we now have more ranges, we're hoping this feature will enable you to browse all the colours in each range without needing to open multiple tabs and squint.  Sheep come in such a wealth of natural shades and we love naturally coloured yarns just as much as dyed ones, so we've gathered together all undyed yarns for those of you who prefer to keep things natural. 

The colours of each range are subtly different, but almost all can be used together to create garments with interesting textures - just make sure you select all the same weight.

  • Pure Shetland DK Moorit undyed knitting yarn

    Shetland fleece can be the finest of British breed wools and we select the finest we can find, so these yarns are particularly soft.  We are just as picky about the Jacob fleeces we use.  While Jacob is not quite as fine and soft as Shetland, it has great bulk, a little lustre in the white wool and a stronger colour.  So blending together makes for a really cosy and unusual yarn, here in a limited edition in DK and 4-ply.

  • Pure Texel Aran Dark yarn

    A rare chance to try the wool of Texel sheep, usually better known for meat. The yarn is soft and naturally coloured, again rare for this breed. Well worth a trial as this limited edition is a one-off. Learn More
  • St. Kilda Laceweight, Isle of Dùn pale undyed

    Our 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 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.

  • Lyonesse natural Quartz grey DK yarn

    This special 50/50 blend of natural linen and soft white Falkland Island Corriedale/Merino wool is worsted spun for a soft, smooth finish.  The wool adds presence and memory to the yarn, while the linen contributes crispness and strength. The combination creates a light yarn with good stitch definition, which will retain its block wonderfully.

  • Pure Romney Guernsey Natural light grey yarn

    The traditional 5-ply Guernsey yarn was named for the Channel Islands but was spun from local wool in coastal areas all around the UK and Northern Europe. It was then knitted into warm working wear for sea-faring and (we have no doubt) farming and mining people.  Also of course we get 'Gansey' and 'Jersey' from the same creative roots.

  • Pure Castlemilk Moorit DK knitting yarn

    1 Review(s)

    The very rare Castlemilk Moorit sheep was a breed specially created from crossing Manx Loagthan and Shetland sheep to make a small parkland sheep for the Castlemilk estate.  After almost dying out, the remainder of the flock was rescued by Joe Henson and revived at the Cotswold Farm Park.  Their wool is short and brown and makes an amazingly plushy and bulky brown yarn, ideal for outer wear and accessories.

  • Blacker Swan natural white Dusty Miller DK knitting yarn

    Blacker Swan, launched in 2012, was originally based on a partnership between Blacker Yarns and Andrez and Ali Short from Swan Inlet Farm on the Falkland Islands. Andrez and Ali then retired and handed on the flock to Mike and Donna Evans at Spring Point Farm. Like the Shorts, the Evans have continued breeding specialist Dohne merino sheep, which are easier to maintain and shear than traditional merino. We have continued to source these fleeces, which are of both high quality and high welfare, like all Falklands merino wool. When we buy from the Falklands we are able to source from individual farms, so the chain from the field to the yarn is identified, so we can spin the fine wool into luxurious worsted spun single flock yarns.

    In order to enhance the base shade and reduce the tendency of Merino to pill, we also add 8% Shetland and dark Blue-faced Leicester wool to our Pale Maiden base yarn and 15% to the Stone and Sand bases. The small amount of dark fibre increases the depth of dye shades and enhances the special Swan palette. The natural white Dusty Miller is pure Merino alone.

    The handle is very smooth, soft and luxurious: possibly the best knitting yarn in the world! Being worsted spun, the yarn has a bulky, drapey quality and good stitch definition, which will work well for structured and flowing garments and also for textures.
