We have many other beautiful colours of this special yarn. Loop is so proud to be one of the only stockists in the world of Hampshire 4 Ply.
The Hampshire is a scrumptious lofty yarn, with good stitch definition. Once blocked the fabric blooms and has a silky quality which only improves with wear. Just right for a snuggly cardigan or a colour work project. The colours are based on the natural colours of their home county, working with the variegated base rather than trying to obliterate it with saturated colour.
From start to finish, lambing, making the hay they feed, through to the scouring (washing) plant and spinning mill, right back to the hand dyeing on the farm. Everything is done in the UK.
Only pure virgin wool is used, no chlorine chemical treatments, no super wash - just as nature intended.
Each part of the process relies on the artisan's expertise, it takes years of training to produce our yarn, but it takes something else as well. Passion. Everyone involved is nuts about producing the best of British yarn from Susie shearing, Matt washing, and Michael spinning. Last but not least, hand dyeing every skein for your enjoyment.
Emma of The Grey Sheep, has knit a beautiful Mustard version of this shawl, so we stocked up on this colour too as it is a really lovely version of the shawl, if you love this colour like we do!.
