We are launching several new yarns at the Breidagen – De Rerum Natura – These are French woolen yarns of made with a mix of French wool and other merinos made in an ecological way. The yarns are soft but wooly and hand wash! – no superwash here! In our collection we have Ulysse (sport weight), Gilliatt (worsted/aran) and Cyrano (bulky) and a small selection of Pénélope (DK).
The second exciting yarn is Tukuwool, from Finland – tukuwool
This yarn is dyed and spun in Finland with Finnish wool. It is small collection with sock yarn and fingering weight! A real liefhebber yarn!
The Fibre Co are sponsoring the yarn for Melanie Berg’s workshop and we are luckily enough to have The Fibre Co Cumbria Fingering and the new Arranmore Light, a lovely soft tweed with a little silk and cashmere in, as well as the rest of our collection of Cumbria Worsted, Canopy and Road to China light and Lace.
