Our Aran weight ryeland wool is naturally coloured and sold in 100g balls. It’s perfect for knitting, dyeing, and crocheting.
Ryelands are one of the UK’s oldest sheep breeds, prized throughout history for their fine fleeces which have a wonderful natural crimp that makes their wool soft and easy to work with.
Aran weight yarns and worsted weight yarns are often interchangeable, but actually different weights. Worsted weight yarn is finer - aran weight yarn requires 5mm needles or hook. Aran weight yarn is sometimes reffered to as heavy worsted weight or 10ply too.
All the wool sold in our shop comes from our own well tended flock of woolly sheep. Who graze on wildflower pastures throughout the year as part of a regenerative farming practice. Find out more about our farm here: www.lowauldgirth.co.uk
Our ryeland wool is grown on our farm in Scotland, shorn on farm, and processed in the UK. We are very conscious about keeping our carbon footprint as low as possible, and our products as local as possible.
