This yarn is truly wonderful to knit with and has a great textured softness.
Loop is thrilled to be the UK stockist of Woolfolk yarns.
A wonderful DK version of Woolfolk's chunky Flette.
Flette means braid. Flette utilizes modern technology to create a textured yarn that is 100% Ultimate Merino that is a delight to knit with, unlike boucles of the past. Flette is ideal for constructing simple, modern silhouettes.
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.
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 hand-knitting 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.
