Wold Sport - Farm Gate

About Wold Sport weight:
100% British wool - 50% Southdown, 25% Bluefaced Leicester, 25% Shetland
147 metres / 160 yards per 50g skein.
 Recommended gauge from 26 to 28 sts to 10cm (4in) using 3.25-3.75 mm needles.

This artisanal yarn is a unique blend of  the wool of three British sheep breeds known for their beautiful fleeces, Southdown, Bluefaced Leicester and Shetland, creating a fabulously soft white yarn with bounce and spring.


This sport weight yarn is made of 4 plies worsted spun to create a bouncy, airy fibre.

Wold Sport is hand-dyed here at our dye studio, A Room Of My own, on the natural, undyed, non-superwash, white yarn. Wold takes colour exceptionally well, producing strong, semi-solid shades.

About Farm Gate:

Old farm gates have a particular beauty. Aged and usually broken in some way; hanging from only one hinge, tied in place with the ubiquitous baling twine, or held together with the wood from several other gates long since removed. The wood is pale and weathered, washed by years of wind, rain, sleet and snow, softening the brightness of newly made timbers into a softer patina. Farm Gate shares that softness and variegation of tone accompanied with surprising depth.
