Erika is a highly respected knitwear and crochet designer, as well as the creator of her own eponymous yarn range. Many of you will already be familiar with some of her yarns that we have come to love and indeed, we stock, yarns such as British Blue dk, Studio Linen, Fur Wool and more…
She is here to launch her absolutely stunning new
This yarn is an aran weight yarn with a difference, it is a sustainable blend of soft wool and natural nettle.
Come along and meet the designer, try on sample garments and see for yourself what all the excitement is really about!
Spun from the fibre found inside the stem of the plant, nettle has been used for 2000 years for its strength and durability as a textile. Nettle is grown abundantly and perennially in rainy areas worldwide without the need for harmful pollutants or pesticides, making it eco-friendly and sustainable.
Blended with luxurious wool the nettle enhances the character of this yarn, adding insulation and texture, which contrary to its prickly persona, creates a sumptuously soft ‘aran’ weight yarn in a palette of irresistible colours inspired by the wild.
With Erika’s influence and design flare Wild Wool translates into a stunning array of modern classic designs that we will want to wear week in, week out for many years to come.
