This is soulful stash if ever there was!
Blacker’s St. Kilda yarn is a unique and rare homage to the Scottish archipelago and World Heritage site on the outer edges of the Hebrides. The islands’ native Boreray and Soay sheep are two of the oldest and rarest of all British breeds, so there is only enough wool to make a limited amount each year. These fibers are hand blended together with Shetland to create a beautifully delicate and textured yarn with plenty of bounce. St. Kilda has a real grip so it is exquisitely suited to lace knitting and textured shawls.
For more details on St. Kilda there is also a dedicated website, www.kilda.org.uk.
