An aran-weight knitting wool spun in Scotland in a range of tweedy and marled shades. This yarn is also excellent for felting into sumptuous, thick felt - perfect for bags.

Oiled pure wool - if required the balls may be washed prior to knitting. Gentle hand wash, do not wring, do not tumble dry, iron under damp cloth. Can be dry cleaned.

Aran knitting weight; 170m per skein. Use 5mm needles and knit to a tension of 19sts and 24 rows to a 10cm square. Measure your tension square, then wash and re-measure before beginning to knit your project and adjust needles/pattern size if necessary.

These woollen spun yarns are available in rich tweedy and marled colours and all contain subtle coloured flecks and nepps.
