Pure wool is 100% natural, 100% renewable, 100% sustainable, 100% biodegradable, and good for the planet. Need we say more? For those supporters of natural fibres, especially native breed wool, this is for you.
Our double knitting wool is grown on Exmoor by Exmoor Horn sheep, is spun on Exmoor, and as well as coming in a natural colour, also
comes dyed in the colours of the Exmoor landscape. Connoisseurs of the wide variety of British wool types will appreciate the robust, hard-wearing, though soft, qualities of Exmoor Horn wool, which is ideally suited for pullovers, jackets, tank tops, waistcoats, and the like. You’ll feel at one with the outdoors in any garment knitted with our yarn. This is a 70:30 blend of Exmoor Horn
and Exmoor blueface (aka Exmoor mule) which is a cross-bred sheep derived from a Leicester blueface ram on an Exmoor Horn ewe. So
our resulting blend is effectively 85% Horn.
Our dyes are low-impact synthetic dyes, which means that less water is required in the rinse process due to a higher rate of absorption.
They do not contain heavy metals and, unlike natural dyes, do not require toxic mordants to fix the colour.
Each skein is approximately 250 metres long per 100 grams and conforms to BS984.
Please remember to use only wool-friendly detergents – biological detergents or those including bleach will seriously damage wool!
