The very best in Scottish lambswool - 3-ply or light fingering yarn unravelled from a Johnstons sweater. Beautiful dark bottle green, rather like British Racing Green (and I must apologise, it was extremely difficult to photograph so I have lightened them in order to show the colour - otherwise it would have looked black! In real life it is darker). The yarn is made up of two plies and has a slight loft, measuring 17 WPI. It has a bit of squish to it and a bit of roughness, characteristic of Scottish wool, although not too much that it would be impossible to wear next to the skin (unless you are very sensitive!).

3-ply yarn makes for excellent yardage and therefore very economical knitting! Perfect for vintage projects too. Hand wash only.

This listing is for one 65g hank, approximately 530m. I have 300g or 2460m in total; each hank is listed separately. If you purchase the whole sweater's worth of yarn, you will also receive the original tag and care label, and I will combine the shipping cost.

Information about my yarn:

I reclaim yarn from second-hand sweaters, to be knitted and loved again another day! I choose luxury fibres, lust-worthy colours and high-quality brands to bring you beautiful yarns of all kinds. The sweaters are gently unpicked and unravelled into hanks by hand to be weighed, measured and washed. I tag them carefully with a handwritten label including washing instructions. Each hank is unique, and my process ensures nothing is wasted. I do my best to weigh and measure yardage accurately, but please take the numbers as approximate.

If you'd like your yarn wound into a centre-pull ball before dispatch, just let me know.
