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.
Limestone is a warm oatmeal shade, almost like putty but with the tiniest touch of pink to add warmth. Its the perfect base shade when Alabaster is too strong a contrast or too cool a shade. Great for every Fair Isle project.
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!
