Tekapo Yarn 8-ply by Ashford

Ashford Wheels and Looms is proud of its very own Tekapo Yarn. It is 100% pure New Zealand, with the wool grown on sheep farms around New Zealand and yarn spun in a small boutique mill in Hawkes Bay. The yarn is named after the beautiful Lake Tekapo, just 90 minutes south-west of Ashburton. The lake, ringed by snow capped Southern Alps and glaciers is famous for its bright turquoise colour caused by its suspended glacial dust. In 1857 one of the first sheep stations in the New Zealand was established on its shore.

This semi worsted yarn is a blend of corriedale and perendale especially designed for softness and strength. It is lofty and bulky and ideal for weaving, knitting, and knit/felt garments, and accessories.
