Mergelland is the first yarn for knitting and crochet we've designed for you. It's an aran weight yarn (needle size 4 to 5 mm) spun entirely from the wool of Mergelland sheep. The Mergelland sheep is an old and rare breed, tall and hornless, with a spacious and light fleece.
Mergelland is sturdy and durable, perfect for your favourite ever-lasting winter sweater. It's a worsted yarn, which means the fibers have been combed to get them all in the same direction before spinning. That makes for a stronger yarn, because we think that if you do the effort to knit a garment it should last long!
