Wild Wool is a sustainable blend of soft wool and natural nettle.
Spun from the fibre found inside the stem of the plant, nettle has been used for 2000 years for its strength and durability as a textile. Nettle is grown abundantly and perennially in rainy areas worldwide without the need for harmful pollutants or pesticides, making it eco-friendly and sustainable.
Blended with luxurious wool the nettle enhances the character of this yarn, adding insulation and texture, which contrary to its prickly persona, creates a sumptuously soft 'aran' weight yarn in a palette of irresistible colours inspired by the wild.
N.B. Colour swatches may be subject to slight variation depending on the calibration of your computer monitor.

This is the third time I purchased this yarn I love it so much! A huge thank you to Angela for sorting out the right batch number for me most recently. I couldn’t believe I managed to get a the last one in matching batch colour so I could finish my project.
The order was dealt with very efficiently with extremely helpful staff and it arrived the next day. My daughter is knitting it and she says the wool is beautiful to knit with and very soft.
The wool is very good, strong and knits up well. The packaging that it came in was dreadful. We are dealing with a climate emergency and 2 hanks of wool came in thick plastic, covered in tape and then when I got inside that I found the same again - like pass the parcel! Sconch you really need to address this and I wouldn’t buy from you again until you get the packaging sorted
Nice wool to knit with though would have preferred it not to have been sent in a plastic bag
