Since 1998, Garthenor has only ever produced entirely undyed yarns, offered in a broad palette representing the natural beauty of the British landscape. Henorius, on the other hand, leaps into the dye pots to embrace a launch collection of 25 solid shades.
Pennine is a worsted spun lace weight yarn. Pennine is made up of “Romwarth” blend that consists of of 60% Single Farm Polwarth from the Falkland Islands and 40% Single Farm English Romney, from the South of England. Combed into a smooth and lustrous top, this rich blend is a true luxury lace. Skein dyed to a nuanced palette, all Henorius yarns are 100% Certified Organic and made in Britain.
Knit this on some 5mm needles for some open and airy lace work, or switch to 1.5mm for a denser, tighter knit fabric. This laceweight yarn also works amazingly well knitted as two strands – either to create a single colour 4 ply gauge, or a custom marl.
Garthenor’s mission is to promote and provide a variety of sustainable, organic & British wool products in an ecologically responsible way. Every single product Garthenor produces is Certified Organic by The Soil Association to Global Organic Textile Standards. In 2003, Garthenor became the first fully certified organic yarn in the world.
