How do you celebrate a 10th birthday as a Cornish Wool Mill? You make a Cornish spun yarn, of course! We’ve hand blended this yarn using fibre from ten of our favourite small producers.

This steely grey woollen spun yarn is blended from a collection of the highest quality British fibres including Alpaca, Gotland, Jacob, Shetland, Black Welsh Mountain, Mohair, and English Merino. Cornish Tin is a careful blend of lustrous, smooth fibres with slightly more bulky wools to create a lovely handle and give the yarn a delicate halo after blocking. This yarn is truly limited edition and will only be made once! This wonderfully bouncy yarn is available in a gorgeous silver grey and 4 bold dyed shades all named after Cornish Tin Mines.

To make Tin really special we photographed it alongside Cornish mineral samples from the collection at the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro. Most of the minerals we used are derived from copper and all samples were found in Cornish mines. We’ve spun this yarn to both 4-ply and DK.
