Corriedale is another of our favourite British wools! Fantastically durable with its long, smooth and lusterous staple. It's a springy yarn which holds its shape really well. It's really very squishy and lovely, and takes dye so beautifully.
Lovingly hand-dyed in Belfast by Bernie & Derek, this non-superwash, non-nylon yarn would be gorgeous for socks and garments which get worn lots.
Ingredients: 50% Corriedale, 50% Mohair
Length: 400m (437yd)
Gauge: Fingering / 4-Ply
Based in beautiful Northern Ireland, Bear In Sheep's Clothing are a fabulous husband & wife team of talented indie dyers and podcasters. Bernie and Derek are passionate about luxury fibres sourced as locally and ethically as possible. For now that means British wool, spun in Britain.
Hand-dyed with love and care in Belfast, Bernie & Derek consider the health of the planet in every step they take: using non-toxic, heat and light fast acid dyes, and food grade citric acid as the setting agent. Every last bit of dye is exhausted from their pots. Water is reused and they use as little plastic in their packaging as possible. We love that it arrives here in giant potato sacks!
Bear's colour palette are often inspired by the Irish countryside, cult classics and cartoons, even a piece of jewellery! They absolutely love what they do and it really shows in their gorgeous yarns!
