For years traditional knitting of Ganseys, Guernseys, Cornish Knit-Frocks and all fisherman’s sweaters has been part of British history with many stitch patterns referencing locations from Cornwall to Robin Hood’s Bay.

This special 5-ply wool is spun and dyed in Yorkshire in the mills that have been supplying the very best of British yarns for generations.
Whether you knit a garment or an accessory in this smooth, robust tightly worsted spun yarn it will be the sort of piece that you will reach for time and time again for brisk country rambles and walks by the sea. Built to last, this yarn gives great stitch definition in both cable and texture stitches and will keep its good looks for years to come. A real investment yarn.
