Green Street 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. Green Street, or Herepath, is an Anglo-Saxon road which rises from Avebury, the prehistoric stone circle, and leads over the Marlborough Downs. For many years, I rode my horse down Green Street, in the footsteps of ninth century armies. The gradient goes from the dark green of the trees in Delling Copse, through the pasture greens of Fyfield Down, to the grey of the sarsen stones which were used by our prehistoric ancestors to build their monuments.
  • 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.
