Our Double Knitting Wool, which comes in 50g balls, is a robust yet lightweight yarn, perfect for everyday knitwear projects and ideal for all the family.

New Lanark Double Knitting yarn is available in a total of 49 colour shades and comes in four striking ranges:
Donegal Silk Tweed: This range consists of 90% wool and 10% silk for a touch of added luxury.

Heather Mixes: A 100% Pure New Wool range, reflecting all the stunning colours of the Scottish Countryside.
Natural Blend: A 100% Pure New Wool range, made from blending different quantities of un-dyed Merino and Zwarble wool, resulting in a wonderful variety of natural pure yarn.

The Italian Collection: A 100% Pure New Wool range, in colours created to reflect the vibrancy of Italy.
Our Double Knitting wool is produced with care and spun to the highest quality on a traditional 19th century spinning mule, which is powered by renewable energy, thereby allowing us at New Lanark Wool & Textiles to keep our environmental impact to a minimum.
