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.
Flanders Field Red is our own tribute to the ANZAC soldiers (Australia and New Zealand Army Corps). On 25 April each year we wear red poppies to commemorate the brave and sad World War I battle at Flanders Field in Belguim from which many of our men never returned.
