Heather Weir. 4ply Corriedale, California
New Zealand Corriedale Wool
415m | Fingering/4ply
California - shades of toffee brown and rust. Hand dyed yarn.
4ply Corriedale SW : The perfect nylon-free sock yarn! Exquisite quality pure 100% NZ superwash 27 micron Corriedale wool 4ply yarn. Corriedale has a very similar squish and softness to Merino but is harder wearing, longer lasting and more pill-resistant. Beautifully cozy and supple to work with and wear. This yarn is lovingly grown and milled ethically and sustainably at a boutique mill just a short drive from us, in the heart of the Manawatū region, Aotearoa.
This yarn is a great choice for knitting socks, sweaters, shawls, scarves, and hats - you can see all our 4ply knitting patterns here.
Knitting with hand dyed yarns: as each skein will vary slightly in colour, we recommend that if working with multiple skeins in the same colour way that you work two skeins at the same time. ie working one or two rows/rounds with one skein, then swapping to the other. This will reduce the chance of obvious pooling of colour.
