This special blend of natural linen and soft white Falkland Island Corriedale/Merino wool is worsted spun for a soft, smooth finish. The wool adds some presence and memory to the yarn, while the linen contributes crispness and strength. The combination creates a light yarn with good stitch definition, which will retain its block wonderfully.

This is our Summer range, named after the mythical sunken land of Lyonesse, lost under the waves millennia ago off the far west of Cornwall – or perhaps just remaining as a ghostly presence on the Isles of Scilly?

Lyonesse is available in both Double Knitting and 4-ply in a range of breezy summer shades and one natural. It is ideal for summer cardigans, tunics, cowls and shawls.
