Made in Britain

It took two years of working with John Arbon in Devon for Marie to produce this luxury worsted spun yarn and the result is a beautiful 4-ply that is soft and strong with a delightful springiness and slight lustre. The 4 British fibres are spun and then steam relaxed. This is a process which opens up the yarn to create a fullness and lightness making it a delight to handle and knit. 

Available in a beautiful palette of 26 shades, this one of a kind yarn was made for Marie’s stunning knitting patterns in her signature style, just like the garment and accessory designs found in her latest books Wildwood and Gentle. 

For UK delivery, we use Royal Mail’s Tracked 24 and Tracked 48 services. Provided goods are in stock, every effort will be made to dispatch your order the next day during shop opening hours, 1-3 days when the shop is closed.

To give you the best results we always check the dye lot numbers match within each order.  If for any reason it is not possible to complete your order using only one dye lot we will contact you as soon as possible.
