natural fleece shades

120 yards / 110 m per 50g skein

Designed and developed exclusively for KDD Buachaille is a 100% wool yarn with bags of Scottish character. Created from a top-quality blend of carefully sorted Shetland and Cheviot fleeces, Buachaille is a 2-ply, worsted spun yarn, with a light, smooth hand, good stitch definition, and an attractive “halo”. It is a robust and highly versatile “woolly-wool”, and suits a wide range of projects from socks to sweaters.

Buachaille is currently available in 2 beautifully subtle natural fleece colours: Haar (natural silver grey) and Squall (natural dark grey)

Buachaille is the Scottish Gaelic term for herdsman or shepherd, and is also associated with two beautiful mountains close to Kate’s home in the Scottish highlands (Buachaille Etive Mor and Buachaille Etive Beag).

Please note that the dyed shades of this yarn have now been discontinued - its available in two natural fleece shades only
