An all natural, no nylon and non superwash, yarn designed with sock knitting in mind……but perfect for shawls and light cardigans too.

Soft but strong with a halo and shine from the mohair and drape and lustre from the BFL.

Beautiful supporting sock pattern Munlochy by Clare Devine, suited for all ages. And the prettiest colourwork socks ever, Cockle Socks by Katie Green.

BFL from two farms on the Black Isle (Craigallan and Wester Raddery), South African Mohair and spun in Scotland by The Border Mill.

Black Isle Yarns produces local, sustainable and natural yarns. We source wool from special local sheep flocks and create single farm yarns and unique blends.

Our yarns come in their beautiful natural undyed colours and in limited batches of glorious colours naturally dyed at home on the Black Isle.
