The Woolly Thistle is excited to bring you Yarnadelic! As you may know, John Arbon is not only a spinner of yarn but also records. This got them thinking it would be wonderful to create a yarn range inspired by his eclectic record collection – everything from punk to funk. They had a cracking evening when John played the Mill folk a few of his favorites and, while sipping a few glasses of chilled wine, they all wrote down the color each song evoked. Then the hand carders came out, and they began creating shades to illustrate the sentiment of each piece – and thus, the palette for Yarnadelic was born.
Yarnadelic is 100% Falklands Corriedale. The breed is around 100 years old and was derived by crossing the Merino and Lincoln Longwool. Its properties are a perfect balance of delightful softness and bounce from the Merino combined with the slight luster and long staple length of the Lincoln Longwool – a fiber lover’s dream! By giving this yarn a rounded three-fold structure, they’ve enhanced the fibers' natural stitch definition and drape, creating the ideal go-to yarn for everything from cables to lace and garments to accessories.
Made in the UK
There are a number of beautiful patterns that recommend this gorgeous yarn. Some of our current favorites are the Lehto Sweater by Anna Johanna in her book Strands of Joy, the Mitts Camille by Astrid Tueting, and the Don't Fret Shawl by Jo Shaw. These are just a few suggestions for possible projects!
Please remember that every effort is taken to represent the true colors of the yarn and that monitor settings will vary.
