Fenella 2 Ply

New from Susan Crawford Vintage
A unique 100% British wool, grown, spun, dyed and finished in Britain.A 2 ply yarn that knits up to that elusive vintage '3 ply' tension. It is an extremely versatile yarn which can be knitted on a variety of needle sizes to give different results. Susan has spent many months examining original hand knitted garments from the 1930s to the 1950s and from these she extracted 16 shades which reflect the colours found in these garments. Fenella has been been spun for us by John Arbon of Fibre Harvest. Susan then worked very closely with a yarn dyer in the Borders of Scotland to recreate the colours, exactly as she required. Fenella is available in 25g skeins making it perfect for colourwork projects. The metreage on each skein is approximately124m. The skeining and banding of the yarn all takes place on our farm making this a truly artisan product.
