All British and certified organic! Garthenor Number 1 is a laceweight yarn suitable for practical wear as well as for very special heirloom pieces.

Knit with attitude is delighted to present the wonderful yarns of Garthenor to our selection! Garthenor’s mission is to promote and provide a variety of sustainable, organic & British yarns in an ecologically responsible way. Their aim is to help secure the future of British organic agriculture and the British textile industry. All the wool you’ll see under the Garthenor name on has been certified to global organic standards.

Garthenor started in the 1990s, with wool produced from their own sheep. Since then they expanded faster than their flock, and now they buy raw fleeces from around the UK directly from the farmer – no middle man, which means all Garthenor wool is fully traceable from sheep to hank.

Garthenor's artisan yarns are produced from wool sourced directly from the finest certified organic flocks in the UK, and are carefully blended to produce deep, heathery shades in an unrivalled undyed palette.

Garthenor Number 1 is a single ply laceweight yarn suitable for practical wear but also for that one very special heirloom piece. It is sturdy with a gorgeous stitch definition, still very soft and shiny with a little lustre.

Garthenor Number 1 comes in a wide range of natural colours - all created through the careful choice of fibre blends. Please note that the due to the weight of the different blends there is a small difference in meterage between the blends:
