British yarn company Blacker Yarns has introduced a gorgeous new wool blend, Westcountry Tweed. Spun from a blend of Teeswater Cross and Black Welsh Mountain wools, this yarn was created as truly local wool, with all the fibre sourced within 100 miles of the Blacker Yarns mill in Cornwall. Itâ€™s a lustrous, hardwearing DK yarn in a selection of beautiful limited edition colours.
Â£6 per 50g/110m/119yds
A very special, traditional yarn producing a strong, firm yet soft fabric with a well-defined stitch.
It is a thick, smooth DK that feels slightly felted, and works beautifully on 4-5mm hooks. The yarn is spun from a mix of British rare breeds in heathered shades of blue, green and purple.
