Woven Beyond yarns are made with natural fibres that are sustainably grown and fully traceable. They exclusively utilise fibres sourced from farms that operate in synergy with their surrounding ecosystems and that actively engage in restoring nature. Woven Beyond advocate for the adoption of natural fibers in the fashion and crafting industry as a means to phase out the production and use of harmful plastic-based fibres like nylon and acrylic. They believe that fashion can thrive with nature and be a catalyst for positive change!

We are incredibly proud to present Woven Beyond's first fully traceable and sustainable yarn collection showcasing French Merino D’Arles wool and Himalayan Nettle, and even with a dash of Lotus fibre. By blending these fibers in various ways, they have created a distinct yarn range that is not only visually stunning but also incredibly soft to the touch.

Crimp is a very exciting Bouclé yarn. To make Bouclé at least two strands of yarn are combined, with the tension on one strand being much looser than the other as it is being plied, with the loose strand forming the loops and the other strand as the anchor or “core” yarn. It is crucial that the core strand is strong enough to hold the 'crimp' of the yarn, and so traditionally it is made using a synthetic fibre, often nylon. As Bouclé is making it's way back into fashion Woven Beyond presents a plant fibre core which not only will maintain the texture of the yarn, but provides a gorgeous luster and a soft touch to the skin, unlike the syntethic alternatives. Crimp is made in a wonderful Merino d'Arles / Himalayan Nettle / Lotus blend. It is silky and incredibly soft to the touch with a luxurious sheen. In a heavy Aran weight it is incredibly versatile and can be worked on a wide range of needle sizes depending on the textural effect you're after. This yarn is suitable for baby garments, blankets and those favourite close to the skin projects.
