To create the subtle, complex pair of bases that make up Preseli, they're mill-blended as tops before spinning. By blending this way, we're able to get a smooth, even top that keeps the deep grey blend, perfect for heathery tones once dyed.

A blend of Polwarth, Romney and Hebridean, Preseli is our softest yarn ever. In a palette of 36 gorgeous colourways, this one is a dream for colourwork.

Climate positive

1.48kg. That's the CO2 equivalent footprint of each skein. In calculating this, we've been our own harshest critic - it's definitely a lot less than this, but we still offset 3kg for every one.

1 skein = 1 tree

We've partnered with Ecologi to plant a tree for every single skein we sell. So far, we've planted over 7,000.
