Excelana North is a very special blend of Excelana 4 Ply, spun specially for us to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Susan Crawford Vintage supporting British wools. Excelana North Fingering weight has been created to perfectly match the original Excelana 4 Ply. It is worsted spun for a soft handle from 3 plies of this stunning Cheviot and Bluefaced Leicester blend. It works exquisitely for Fair Isle projects as well as textured and lace stitches; responding well to blocking and holding its shape beautifully. Despite its softness, Excelana is a sturdy yarn that doesn't pill easily.
Excelana North is available in economical 50gm skeins.
