Campaign for Wool

Campaign for Wool An exceptional yarn, spun from the only finest fleece that the sheep produces, it's the absolute best of British.

Awesome Aran has the softness and bounce you'd associate with merino. It's a great all-rounder, perfect for hats, scarves and warm sweaters (including the classic cabled Aran).

Bluefaced Leicester is a native British sheep breed. Its fleece has a subtle lustre, unique to the breed, which adds an exceptional depth of colour to our hand-dyed shades. Its long staple length makes it hard-wearing, and being a superwash yarn, it's easy to care for too.

The shade name is inspired by a wintertime trip to the Norwegian fjords, and translates as ‘icy’.
