We sell redundant stocks and ends of lines; the yarns are sourced from industry and of excellent quality. Most of our yarn is supplied on cone and often wound down to 500 grams.
We are, however, unable to offer total repeatability and always recommend that you buy enough yarn to complete your project.
Our stock is constantly changing but there are several fairly standard qualities which are usually available:
Smooth, soft and lustrous combed lambswool yarn from various spinners in several different counts: 2/48nm, 2/30nm, 3/30nm, 2x2/48nm
