Wold Sport - Lime Mortar

About Wold Sport weight:
100% British wool - 50% Southdown, 25% Bluefaced Leicester, 25% Shetland
147 metres / 160 yards per 50g skein.
 Recommended gauge from 26 to 28 sts to 10cm (4in) using 3.25-3.75 mm needles.

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 worsted spun to create a bouncy, airy fibre.

Wold Sport is hand-dyed here at our dye studio, A Room Of My own, on the natural, undyed, non-superwash, white yarn. Wold takes colour exceptionally well, producing strong, semi-solid shades.

About Lime Mortar:The old stone walls of farmhouses and barns around the UK are held together by lime mortar a traditional method of glueing together the stones and widely used throughout history in many different countries and cultures. Lime mortar can be coloured to match the substance it is being used to hold together, but often it is a natural soft beige with darker brown tones speckled through it. Lime Mortar attempts to replicate this with a complex, slightly variegated colour with darker and lighter tones throughout the skein.

Care Instructions
Hand wash with care in cool water using a gentle wool wash and dry flat.
Please note
As these yarns are hand-dyed please be aware that there will be subtle variation between dye lots. Because of this please be sure to purchase enough yarn for your project.
