100% British wool, grown, spun and dyed in Britain and hand finished here at Monkley Ghyll.
A 4ply/fingering 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.
159 metres/174 yards per 50g skein
Recommended gauge between 26 and 28 sts to 10cm (4in) using 3-3.25mm needles.
French Rose always seems to evade description. Its a soft pink but not pale; a slightly blue pink with grey undertones - faded french roses drying in the sun.
Handwash in lukewarm water using a wool care product.
For best results, soak your completed project in lukewarm soapy water and watch the wool bloom!
