Pure New Hebridean Wool
Pure New Wool from our own An Gàrradh Mòr flock of registered pedigree Hebridean sheep.
The fleeces are sorted and graded according to purity of colour, fineness and softness, and then sent away for spinning at specialist micro-mills.
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.
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.
