RiverKnits wool yarn is all sourced from British breeds and it is all spun in the UK. Inspiration drawn from their personal lives on the canals and rivers, some directly from the wildlife and landscape, and some from the history of the waterways, results in an out of the ordinary harmonic palette. Chimera is spun in Yorkshire and hand dyed in the RiverKnits studio in Northamptonshire

Chimera is a magical hand-dyed marl entirely unique to RiverKnits! It is a smooth, 4Ply, worsted-spun 2-fold yarn with a lot of lustre and amazing softness. The Bluefaced Leicester breed produces wool that is strong and next-to-skin soft, making it ideal for a wide range of projects. Chimera will work fantastically in statement shawls, hats, mittens, and jumpers. The multi-coloured marl will add a lot of fun and colour to your creations. We recommend combining skeins with each other or with a solid in stripes, or mosaic and stranded colourwork for some wonderful effects.
