Waitomo Caves Blue 4 Ply

Waitomo Caves Blue 4 Ply


This wool is 100% Perendale Lamb's Wool from Te Toko Station in the North Island of New Zealand.

It is 31 Micron - which is ideal for outer garments, cushions, blankets and afghans which need to be harder wearing.


The woollen spinning provides a yarn with a lot of loft to trap air for extra warmth.

The wool has been eco-friendly shrink resist treated - so you can be sure your special project is not going to decrease in size.

Waitomo Caves in the North Island of New Zealand is not only home to Te Toko Station but is also home to the World Famous Waitomo Glowworm caves.  The name is inspired by the water that runs through these amazing limestone caves.  Although the locals think it is a tribute to the local rugby team colours! 

This yarn is a 4 Ply / Sport Weight but is also available in 8 Ply / Double Knitting Weight.  Find the 8 Ply here
