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.

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
Wow! I rarely write reviews, but then again, how often do you come across a yarn like this! Its colour, semi-sheen, strength, stitch definition, texture - all seem perfect. I haven't yet washed or worn - or, indeed, finished - the jumper I'm knitting with it, but I'm confident that it will be comfortable, practical and beautiful in use. Thank you!
This wool is a pleasure to knit with. The wool is soft with a well defined texture. It is so beautiful that I ordered more in a different colourway in case it sells out.
The recommended needle size is 5mm but to get the right tension I used 5.5mm.
