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, and 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. Earth Red, Dark Skies Blue, Heather Purple, Fern Green, Gorse Yellow and natural are all spun on Exmoor and are 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. Each skein is approximately 250 metres long per 100g.

The Hedgerow Pink, Bossington Pebble, Bossington Sea Green, Bossington Sea Mist, Bossington Barley and Bossington Bracken colours take their inspiration from the hues of the landscape around the tiny Exmoor coastal village of Bossington. This yarn is 70% Exmoor Horn wool, 30% Fine Blueface cross wool, and is spun in Yorkshire. Each skein is approximately 230 metres long per 100g.

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 conforms to BS984.

Please remember to use only wool-friendly detergents – biological detergents or those including bleach will seriously damage wool!
