PLEASE NOTE: Darnie is not available for immediate store pick up. You can see the yarn in all colours plus knitted samples in store but we do not hold stock in store. We will be receiving a shipment of stock twice a week and will advise you as soon as it is available to be picked up.

Darnie is an earthy tweed but with oodles of refinement! It's perfect for outer garments to keep the winter cold out. Whatever you make from this beautiful yarn will see you through season after season.... a future heirloom. Flecks of colour are dotted throughout the yarn giving beautiful depth to your finished projects. It has a rustic but soft handle, and would be a beautiful substitute for Brooklyn Tweed Loft.

This yarn is 'in the oil' meaning the final milling process of scouring the spun yarn was bypassed. This process uses an immense amount of water to make the yarn look polished, so leaving it in the oil means that all the water is saved, especially as we repeat the process when you block your finished project. On blocking the yarn blooms, softens and takes on the loveliest appearance. If you don't like the feel you are free to wash the skeins prior to use.

In the oil is also more suitable for machine knitters and handweavers helping lubricate as you work.
