A truly special yarn using the best fleeces from sheep reared in Scotland and blended with the finest cashmere from Mongolia. We are thrilled to be able to bring you this gloriously light, warm and soft yarn in collaboration with Uist Wool and Kay and Alan Carr of Claddach Farm, Peat Inn, Fife.
We have used only the finest organic, lambswool produced entirely on Claddach Farm, blended with the finest cashmere from Mongolia and specially spun by Uist Wool to give you a yarn that is gloriously light, and knits beautifully in gansey, lace, cabling and colour-work.
