Excelana DK 100% Pure British wool

100% British wool, grown, spun and dyed in Britain and hand finished here at Monkley Ghyll.

A DK weight yarn, it is worsted spun for a soft handle, and works exquisitely for Fair Isle projects as well as textured and lace stitches, blocking and holding its shape beautifully. Despite its softness, Excelana is a sturdy yarn that doesn’t pill easily.

250 metres/273 yards per 100g skein

Recommended gauge between 20 and 22 sts to 10cm (4in) using 3.75-4mm needles.
