Pure New Hebridean Wool

Pure New Wool from our own An Gàrradh Mòr flock of registered pedigree Hebridean sheep.  Warm, resilient and hard-wearing, and spun with a firm twist, the Aran weight yarns are perfect for traditional ‘country pursuits’ warmwear – pullovers, etc. The 2-ply double-knit yarn knits up beautifully into lace shawls and lighter-weight cardigans.

The fleeces are sorted and graded according to purity of colour, fineness and softness, and then sent away for spinning at specialist micro-mills.

Our Hebridean Lambswool yarns are made with only the finest and softest fibres from shearling lambs (that is, their first ever shearing), giving a uniformly ‘bitter chocolate’ colour – almost ‘solid’ black, and a semi-lustrous sheen.  Our other Hebridean yarns are characteristic of older Hebridean sheep: charcoal black with whisps of silvery fibres (characteristic of ewes that have already had lambs) and the burnished bronze colour of the weathered tips, giving the yarn a ‘heathery’ character.
