Collection: Kinross

Kinross 4ply is a pure 100% lambswool fingering weight yarn from certified non-mulesed flocks from South Africa and Australia, that knits up with a soft, cosy handle. This yarn is spun for Wee County Yarns by Todd and Duncan, a firm that has been spinning cashmere and lambswool in Perthshire for 150 years and produce high quality yarns for the world's fashion houses. Until 1950 they were based in Alva, in the Wee County, which used to be filled with textile mills. They are now based on the shores of Loch Leven at Kinross, making cashmere and lambswool yarns for big name fashion labels.

The yarn is hanked directly from the cone without being scoured. This means that once it is knitted it needs to be washed, which causes a little bit of magic to happen. It blooms and softens beautifully and feels almost like cashmere!

The yarn has a lovely, rounded texture and excellent stitch definition making it perfect for colourwork, lace or cables. Todd and Duncan has invested heavily in their quality control systems which means the yarn has a consistency that gives the finished garment a real feeling of quality.

Kinross 4 ply comes in 50g hanks with about 205 metres per hank.  There is a range of 22 shades to choose from with naturals and muted shades as well as rich, saturated shades, all reflecting the natural beauty of the Scottish landscape.

We also offer 4x20g skeins of different colours twisted together in one chain for a total weight of 100g, or a full rainbow of miniskeins with 7x20g.
