Icknield Way Gradient 4-Ply Yarn

New product

  • 50g ball of our 4-ply yarn, dyed as a gradient.
  • Our gradient colour collection is inspired by ancient roads and trackways in Wiltshire, our home county. The Icknield Way is one of the oldest tracks in England, and passes through our county from Salisbury towards Oxfordshire. I was inspired by the thought of Roman legionaries using the route to criss-cross the country; the purple and red of their clothing, and the gold of the wealth which they came to find.
  • Our rare breed Cotswold sheep provide the fleece, which is then worsted spun by the Natural Fibre Company in Cornwall.
  • I hand dye it using acid dyes. 
  • Gradient yarns make intriguing scarves and shawls. You'd need two of these 50g balls to make a pair of socks. 
  • Recommended needle size 2.75-3.25mm.
