Reclaimed Lambswool Darning Yarn - Single Colour
Take your pick from our range of 48 beautiful shades from neutrals to bright tones.
This reclaimed quality yarn is perfect for repairs, darning and visible mending.
Spun and dyed right here in the U.K using 100 % merino wool -it's actually leftover surplus yarn from the textile production process and without being rescued it's likely it would end being wasted and sent to landfill.
It contains no added synthetic fibres unlike most darning wool or mending yarns, which are often a mix of wool and polyester/nylon which makes it hard-wearing, but sadly it releases micro-plastics in the wash and doesn't biodegrade. We prefer to source pure yarn which helps to reduce our impact on the planet!
A fine, 2-ply yarn which can be doubled up if you require a thicker yarn for your mending project.
- darning by hand or with a Speedweve loom.
- embroidery on knitwear.
- mending light-medium weight knitwear e.g jumper, cardigan, wool socks, gloves, scarf, hat or even a blanket!
The yarn is presented on a Ministry of Mending card for easy storage.
Each card contains approximately 10 m (33 ft) of yarn.
