Availability: Translation missing: en.general.icons.icon_check_circle icon 6 in stock

A beautiful worsted/aran weight yarn.

Loop is thrilled to be the UK stockist of Woolfolk yarns and patterns.
Woolfolk yarn is harvested from Ovis 21 Ultimate Merino sheep, on sustainably managed heritage grasslands in Patagonia, Argentina.
Spun and Dyed in Peru. Their soft wool feels like cashmere, but wears like merino.
Loop has all 31 colours.

Be part of their story with both Tynd (a fingering yarn) and Fĺr (a worsted yarn) - with beautiful pattern support as well.

Woolfolk yarns combine the highest quality wool with ethical, sustainable practices.
The fiber they use, Ultimate Merino® from Ovis21, doesn’t happen by chance, but by the innovative efforts of farmers to produce the very best wool fiber while being land stewards of the Patagonian Grasslands in Argentina. Spun and milled in Peru. Woolfolk brings this exquisitely soft and lustrous fiber in handknitting yarns that preserves the unique attributes of this luxurious wool.
There is one shearing a year so the fleece, and thus the yarn, is limited.
If computers had a 'touch' button, we'd get it for this as you have to feel it to believe how incredibly soft and beautiful these yarns are.

The chainette construction of Far gives structure, definition, and warmth to this luxuriously soft fiber. A classic worsted weight, Far is just right for gorgeous sweaters, blankets and cold weather accessories!

Melanie Berg's beautiful shawl Void has been knit in Fĺr
