Soft and light with a wonderful bounce, this single ply, woollen-spun laceweight from Garthenor is made from certified organic, British Shetland fleeces. With a slightly rustic nature, it blooms and opens with blocking, making it particularly suited to lace and fine garments. It can also be held double to create a lofty fingering-weight.

Woollenflower yarns are dyed with plants collected around Glasgow, food waste and sustainably-produced raw plant material and dye extracts; these shades are light-fast but, like all natural dyes, may change and develop over time, a quality valued by many cultures.

These particular shades were dyed with buckthorn/ rhubarb (left) and birch leaves (middle and right) and are clear, bright golds.
