We've fallen in love with the latest addition to our yarn range! Navia is yarn from the Faroe Islands - a tiny archipelago midway between the Shetland Islands and Iceland, where the sheep are hardy and knitting runs in the blood!

This is an intriguing yarn that knits on larger needles than you'd imagine and 'fulls' beautifully when washed to create a lofty, open yet warm fabric...

We've listed it as an Aran weight but we think this will prove to be wonderfully versatile yarn for all manner of garments and accessories. The range of shades makes it particularly suitable for colour work with a great neutral palette alongside zingy 'brights' and classics...

Tradition is a rustic blend of Faroese and English lambswool that has strength and body while retaining a light 'lofty' handle. It's not a soft yarn, we'll make that clear... but comes into its own when washed gently, given the chance to bloom and relax.

This yarn will felt if washed hot / agitated.
