Yarnadelic is 100% Falklands Corriedale. The breed is about 100 years old and was created by crossing Merino and Lincoln Longwool. Its characteristics are a perfect balance of the wonderful softness and bounce of the Merino and the light sheen and long staple length of the Lincoln Longwool.
By giving this yarn a round, triple twist, John Arbon enhanced the natural stitch definition of the fibre, creating an ideal all-round yarn for everything from braids to lace, garments to accessories.
Corriedale is bred in the Falkland Islands – ensuring that the animals are treated with the utmost care and are free from mulesing. The fibres are then dyed in England and lovingly prepared, blended and spun at the mill in North Devon.
