Ramble – Heather

Availability : Out of stock
£18.00
Kettle Yarn Co.'s Ramble melds the softest grades of traditional fibres into a delicately lightweight, springy yarn. Think Shetland haps, Fair Isle and Fisherman’s jumpers, or just deliciously toothsome garter stitch. Drawing on a centuries-rich history of sheep rearing and wool production from the Shetland Isles and England’s smugglers paradise, Romney Marshes, this yarn is lightly processed, and woolen spun into a heathered, sheepy cloud.

An airy twirl of the finest British-reared Romney and Shetland fibres, Ramble is sourced directly from local British farms. The fibres are spun and dyed at one of Britain’s few remaining woolen mills, creating a yarn perfect for colourwork, twisted stitches, cables and rustic lace shawls. It’s fleecy 2-ply construction blooms into a lightweight fabric, helping to even irregular stitches into a closely knit, cohesive material with a gorgeously rustic hand.

Ramble’s gauge is very flexible; knit densely it produces a warm, durable fingering-weight fabric, knit loosely it can be a more lofty and bouncy sport to DK weight as the woollen-spun yarn expands to fit spaces left by larger needles. You can also hold two strands together for thicker Fisherman’s jumpers, choosing 2 different colours for a traditional marled effect.

This blend will only be available in small-batches as only the finest graded fibres of Shetland and Romney will be used for this yarn.
