Wold Sport - Farm Gate

About Wold Sport Weight:

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 spun to create a bouncy, airy fibre.

147 metres/160 yards per 50g.

 Recommended gauge from 26 to 28 sts to 10cm (4in) using 3.25-3.75 mm needles.


All shades are limited edition and dyed by hand here at Monkley Ghyll Farm in a range of shades inspired by the landscape on this hillside farm.

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.
