Triskelion Yarns

Triskelion

We are excited about being able to stock this yarn from Triskelion Yarns – based in Carmarthenshire, West Wales, they produce hand-dyed British yarns, blended fibre batts and hand-woven goods. Their yarns are generally British-sourced, and all of the batts use locally-sourced fibre, other than silk and cashmere. All of their yarns are kettle-dyed using single-pigment dyes, yielding rich, strong colours with lots of subtle detailing.

We are stocking ‘Geraint’ – 100% British Bluefaced Leicester, Mona 4ply – alpaca/silk/linen and Scylfing 4ply – Bluefaced Leicester/Gotland

Scylfing 4ply – a characterful yarn with a beautifully soft hand, spun from a 75/25 blend of the finest British Bluefaced Leicester and Gotland wool, and has been custom-spun for Triskelion Yarn by Laxtons in Yorkshire. It has a 2-ply construction, medium spin, and is a good all-round, general purpose 4-ply/fingering weight yarn. The rough, ‘rustic’ blend of grey Gotland with the creamy Bluefaced Leicester gives the yarn a heathered look, and lends itself to great depth of colour.
