Lifelong Yarns



Eildon 4ply - Soft Brown

Eildon 4ply - Soft Brown


Our new yarn for Autumn 2018 !

Eildon adds a woolen spun yarn to our range. It is softer, loftier and lighter than our semi-worsted spun yarns - albeit slightly less hard-wearing. The blend is our favourite 50/50 Scottish Blackface/Blue Faced Leicester, which has proven so popular in our Yarrow yarn. This Soft Brown shade is undyed, created by plying white Scottish Blackface fleece with naturally brown Blue Faced Leicester fleece. The Soft Brown is the perfect neutral, used on its own or combined in colourwork.

Look out for two beautiful complementary shades of Eildon which will arrive in our on-line shop in mid-September. (See our latest blogpost for photos !)

Spun by the Natural Fibre Company in Cornwall.

Gauge - 24sts/34rows = 4 inches (10cms) square in stocking stitch using 3mm needles. (If you wish to substitute this yarn to knit our First Flurries Mitts pattern, choose to knit the size smaller than your actual size , then knit as written.)
