Wool Local by Erika Knight now in stock!
We discovered Wool Local at a show recently and loved the ethos: Erika Knight created Wool Local to support the British heritage of textile mills and to promote native sheep breeds.
From fleece to finished yarn in less than 50 miles, Wool Local is both authentically British and environmentally sustainable.
As we add new yarns to our mix, we're aiming to bring in more and more local - British wool, dyers and brands - as often as we can.
Wool Local starts at the British wool auction in Bradford. The wool is scoured, combed, spun, dyed, steamed and hanked in the county of Yorkshire.
An intimate blend of luxurious Bluefaced Leicester and hardwearing Masham, in a fine 4ply weight, this is a truly local wool, with its roots in the heartland of British textile manufacturing.
Wool Local comes in six beautiful shades with subtle variation throughout as the different natural fibres pick up the dye in their own way.
We can't wait to see what you knit with Wool Local! Be sure to tag #thevillagehaberdashery so we can see!
