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.

  • Blacker Swan natural ivory Pale Maiden 4-ply 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.

  • Pure Shetland DK White 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.

  • 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.

  • Pure Romney Guernsey 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.
