Breed-Specific Yarn Exploration - YARN CLUB

Breed-Specific Yarn Exploration - YARN CLUB


Let’s explore some of the world’s diverse wool!

Over a three month period, we’ll discover some of the rarer breeds of sheep and the wool they produce. Each month you’ll be introduced to a new breed of sheep and receive 100–200g of wool yarn, hand-dyed in exclusive colourways. The yarn is premium non-superwash 100% wool yarn dyed in Ruataniwha Dye Studio’s signature style – muted, semi-solid/tonal colourways. While the yarns and colours will ultimately be a surprise, there will be a sport, a DK, and an aran weight yarn (500g in total) and colours will hail from the pink, blue-green, and mustard-ochre spectrums. There will be no merino, polwarth, or blue-faced leicester wool in the line up.

Accompanying your yarn will be some information about the sheep, the yarn they produce, and discussion about the ideal project uses for the wool, researched and written by me.

Included is standard postage within New Zealand. International customers are welcome to join in, but please select the international postage option that covers the increased cost of delivery.

The parcels will ship in early June, July, and August.
