Tekapo yarn is 100% pure New Zealand, with the wool grown on sheep farms around New Zealand and spun in a small boutique mill in Hawkes Bay. This semi-worsted yarn is a blend of corriedale and perendale, designed for softness and strength. It is lofty and bulky and ideal for knitting, weaving and knit/felt garments, accessories and projects.

The yarn is named after the beautiful Lake Tekapo, just 90 minutes south-west of Ashburton. The lake, ringed by snow capped Southern Alps and glaciers, is famous for its bright turquoise colour caused by its suspended glacial dust. In 1857 one of the first sheep stations in the New Zealand was established on its shore.
