Fenella - Wheaten

100% British wool - 75% Exmoor Mule, 25% Bluefaced Leicester, 129 metres/141 yards per 25g skein. Grown, sheared, spun and dyed in Britain.

Fenella is a 2 Ply yarn, worsted spun for a soft handle, and to replicate vintage '3 Ply' yarns of yesteryear. Its colour palette has been carefully created to echo vintage shades from the 1930s-1970s. It works exquisitely for Fair Isle projects as well as textured and lace stitches, blocking and holding its shape beautifully, whilst also possessing a delightful drape..

It is available in economical 25g skeins, perfect for Fair Isle projects.

Fenella is now hand-dyed in-house by Susan and her daughter, Charlie, at their Lake District dye studio, "A Room Of My Own" in a wide range of beautiful, vintage inspired shades. Fenella is a non-superwash yarn and should be washed by hand in cool water with a gentle wool wash.

About Wheaten: Wheaten, as its name suggests, is the colour of dried wheat or straw, a slightly-yellowish beige, almost camel. A wonderful colour for combining with other shades in the Fenella palette.

 

Handwash in lukewarm water using a wool care product.
