An exquisite limited collection of British wools, British Breeds DK is a woolen spun* yarn by our friends at The Fibre Company in Cornwall, UK.
Lofty, light, cozy, and warm, this untreated yarn is everything we want our cool-weather hand knits to be. Makes wonderful colourwork mittens that keep your hands warm and dry, but well-suited for any garment or accessory. Barely toothy, this yarn will work for next-to-skin wear for many.
Yardage varies by listing; please check carefully.
* What is woolen spun yarn? 'Woolen' refers to the preparation of fibre for spinning. In a woolen spun yarn, fibres are carded into random arrangement--as opposed to combed into alignment for worsted preparation--and this randomness results in more air within the finished yarn. This space means a lofty feel, lightweight warmth, and often a more textured feel in hand than worsted spun yarns.
