100% British wool, grown, spun and dyed in Britain and hand finished here at Monkley Ghyll.
A DK weight yarn, it is worsted spun for a soft handle, and works exquisitely for Fair Isle projects as well as textured and lace stitches, blocking and holding its shape beautifully. Despite its softness, Excelana is a sturdy yarn that doesn't pill easily.
