Spun from a blend of Hebridean sheep fleece from the island of Berneray and Cheviot sheep fleece from North Uist in the Outer Hebrides. 

This lovely red shade is inspired by wild flowers of the Hebrides in summer months. Field Poppies grow on arable ground that was ploughed on the machair the previous year.

This 4 ply finger weight knitting wool is collaboration between local crofters preserving the traditional island crofting way of life. The herd of Hebridean sheep are transported from the croft on Berneray to islands in the Harris Sound for summer grazing via boat. Given the Northern ancestry of the Hebridean sheep, their fleeces produce a yarn that is particularly warm, perfect for cosy sweaters, gloves and hats. The Cheviot wool, a breed that produces fine soft wool, hails from sheep crofts along Clachan Sands on the island of North Uist.

Per ball: 50g / 150 meters of organically dyed Hebridean and Cheviot wool (100% wool), semi worsted. We would recommend knitting as 4 Ply on 3.5mm needles.

Please hand wash with care.
