Àrd-Thìr is a beautiful alpaca/wool blend aran weight yarn in an mouthwatering palette of colours inspired by the Scottish Highlands.

Finally!!! Knit with attitude is extremely excited about this new yarn brought to you by Kate Davies in collaboration with one of our most favourite yarn producers Fyberspates.

Inspired by the Scottish Highlands Kate has developed a colour palette which is unlike anything we have ever seen before here at Knit with attitude. The Scottish winter landscape is often thought to be drained of colour, but if you look carefully, you’ll discover a mix of many interesting shades: from the deepening russet tones of bracken-covered hillsides to the luminous hues of lichen hanging from bare branches; from the glancing orange glow of sunlight across high rocky peaks to the extraordinarily rich colour of a sealoch under a leaden February sky. Each of Kate’s ten shades is a subtle, muted marl; each possesses its own depth and tonal variety; some can be combined into intriguing gradients, and all work together harmoniously as a range.

Àrd-Thìr is a beautiful aran weight yarn, and its worsted spinning and carefully blended fibres lend it a wonderfully soft and squishy hand. It’s a round, smooth and highly versatile yarn that knits up into a wonderfully warm and even fabric. Àrd-Thìr is a blend of Peruvian Highland Wool and Superfine Alpaca, perfect for texture, cables and colourwork.
