Clapdale Wool hand knit hank in natural undyed cream colour

Clapdale Wool 100g DK Hand Knit – Natural Undyed


A 100g hank of undyed DK wool for hand knitting. Manufactured exclusively by Glencroft from fleeces collected from two farms within 5 miles of our warehouse in Clapham, Yorkshire Dales.

The Clapdale Wool project was launched to create a fully traceable yarn that benefitted local farmers with help from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Sustainable Development Fund. Farmers were paid a decent price for their clip and in addition 10% of the profits from the project will also go back to the farms.

The wool contains all the sheep breeds on these two Clapham farms - Dalesbred, Teeswater, Blue Face Leicester (BFL), North of England Mule and Texel. It has produced a beautiful DK weight yarn with a reasonably soft handle and of course has the gorgeous smell of real wool. 100g balls of 2 ply lace weight yarn also available.

We have scoured, carded, combed and spun this wool entirely in West Yorkshire. This is undyed so is predominately a natural cream colour with a tiny amount of darker black and brown wool fibres.

Each hank also has a link on the label to three free knitting patterns created by our local hand knit expert Sandra Oakeshott, for a bias scarf, child's hat and scarf and fingerless mittens - you can see the finished items in the photos, made from the very first Clapdale hanks off the spinning machines!
