How do we describe a yarn as special as Garthenor Number 1? A family of single stranded woollen spun lace weight yarns using the fleece of single breeds of sheep in their natural shades which perfectly highlights the differences between these breeds yet forms a coherent collection of yarns which sit beautifully together in a project such as a traditional Hap Shawl or singly for a one skein kerchief or shawlette that has the exact amount of rusticity for your personal taste.

Whether you enjoy the smooth lustre of a creamy white Blue Faced Leicester or a crisp, robust golden brown Manx Loughton there is something for you in this range which also includes bouncy white Poll Dorset, reliable chocolate brown Shetland and sturdy heathery brown Jacob.
