More have just arrived this March!
This is a beautiful box of yarn from The Border Mill of 50 mini balls of Northcoast Tweed, a firm favourite yarn at Loop!
Each mini ball is 10g making this box set an incredibly beautiful set of colours to play with for all kinds of colorwork, details on different projects, crochet granny squares of all kinds and just the sheer joy of playing with beautiful colours.Pure Shetland yarn in a range of 50 tweedy shades inspired by Scotland's far north coastThis yarn and the range of colours it comes in are totally gorgeous.
The colours are hand-blended. Each yarn (except the white) uses between 2 and 5 different colours of Shetland wool, carded separately, but then combined in various proportions during the drafting process before spinning to get the unique tweedy colours.
We're honoured that The Border Mill has made this available to Loop in a special box of 50 colours. It's absolutely beautiful and makes the best gift for anyone who loves to do colourwork with their knitting and crochet.
The Border Mill is a small fibre spinning mill nestled in the beautiful Scottish Borders. They make their own range of natural and hand-dyed yarns, in pure alpaca and very special blends with other luxury fibres, all grown in Britain.
We also have their very special Alpaca Tweed, a super soft Aran weight yarn with some colours exclusive to Loop, and the larger 50g balls of the Atlantic Tweed.
