WHERE THE WILD WOOL IS...

 

This week we'd like to introduce you to another of our brand new yarns for Autumn/Winter: Erika Knight's Wild Wool. As soon as we saw this yarn at a trade show in the US we knew we had to have it! Wild Wool is a gorgeous blend of soft wool and natural nettle, spun from the fibre found inside the stem of the plant, making a sustainable yarn that doesn't compromise on quality.
Nettle has been used for 2000 years for its strength and durability as a textile and grows abundantly and perennially in rainy areas worldwide without the need for harmful pollutants or pesticides, making it eco-friendly and sustainable.
Blended with luxurious wool the nettle enhances the character of this yarn, adding insulation and texture which, contrary to its prickly persona, creates a sumptuously soft aran weight yarn in a palette of colours also inspired by the wild.

Need some design inspiration? It's a pretty versatile yarn that would lend itself to any number of projects, but we've chosen to knit up Tin Can Knits' Caribou in the silvery Amble shade and we LOVE the results:

We knitted the 35" size using a total of 6 hanks, but as usual with Tin Can Knits' designs the pattern is sized from 17" to 59" chest, the smallest size only take 2 hanks. You can download the Caribou pattern here and, until the end of August, if you use the code CARIBOU we will give you 10% off any purchase of Wild Wool from us- no stingers here!
