Our yarns

John and Juliet from The Border Mill very kindly took a wee detour on their holiday last week (6 Sept) and dropped off Batch 3.  I have boxes of beautiful Gotland, plus a couple of new longwool and longwool cross yarns, beckoning me enticingly! I’ll be back soon to share all the details.  I’m planning to naturally dye and release some of the longwool cross by the end of September.

Once again every stage has taken place in Scotland – grown and naturally dyed in the Highlands and spun in the Borders.

Naturally dyed Cheviot DK

Cheviot naturally dyed

The natural shade of this Cheviot DK weight yarn is a beautiful creamy white – it takes colour very well and lends a warmth to most of these naturally dyed colours.  I have had a lot of fun dyeing these shades – all achieved with natural materials including heather, beech, alder cones and bramble leaves gathered locally and walnuts hulls gifted by Lisa.

Naturally dyed Shetland DK

Shetland barberpole naturally dyed

The three original undyed shades within this lovely barberpole yarn are still visible under the naturally dyed colour, giving a real depth and variation of colour.  They will knit up as a beautifully complex marl.
