Kate Davies Ard Thir

Now on Sale.

A wonderful super soft and bouncy yarn from kate Davies. The minute we held this yarn in our hands at Loop we were smitten.

A beautiful new addition to the Kate Davies Designs range, Àrd Thìr is an aran-weight blend of 60% Peruvian highland wool and 40% Alpaca, produced by our indie collaborators, Fyberspates.

Àrd Thìr’s worsted spinning and carefully blended fibres lend it a wonderfully soft and squishy hand. It’s a round, smooth and highly versatile yarn that knits up into a wonderfully warm and even fabric. Àrd Thìr has been produced in the Highlands of Peru and inspired by the Highlands of Scotland. 

The Scottish winter landscape is often thought to be drained of colour, but if you look carefully, you’ll discover a mix of many interesting shades: from the deepening russet tones of bracken-covered hillsides to the luminous hues of lichen hanging from bare branches; from the glancing orange glow of sunlight across high rocky peaks to the extraordinarily rich colour of a sealoch under a leaden Februrary sky. Each of Kate’s ten shades is a subtle, muted marl; each possesses its own depth and tonal variety; some can be combined into intriguing gradients, and all work together harmoniously as a range.
