Ghyll - Karen
100% British wool, grown and sheared in Lancashire, spun and dyed in Britain and hand finished here at Monkley Ghyll.
A sport weight yarn, it has been worsted spun with a high twist to create a smooth, crisp but bouncy yarn that softens with each wash. Great for textured stitches and lace. The high twist, smooth finish and the hard wearing nature of the yarn make it perfect for sock knitting.
300 metres per 100g skein
Recommended needle size between 3.5mm and 5.5mm depending on requirements.
Susan is one of four limited edition, non-repeatable, hand dyed yarns created for her by some of the UK's leading hand dyers. Karen was hand dyed by Skein Queen who was inspired by the colours and contrasts in the skies around Monkley Ghyll.
