Lyonesse is a very unique blend of natural linen and soft white Corriedale/Merino wool from sheep raised in the tree-less moorland of Falkland Island (just east of the Patagonian coast). The fleeces are worsted spun for a soft, smooth finish in Cornwall, UK. The wool adds some presence and memory to the yarn, while the linen contributes crispness and strength. The combination creates a light yarn with good stitch definition, which retains its block wonderfully.
Lyonesse is named after the mythical sunken land lost under the waves millennia ago off the far west of Cornwall – or perhaps just remaining as a ghostly presence on the Isles of Scilly? Designed with summer in-mind for lightweight cardigans, tunics, cowls and shawls. 100% British Wool!
