Tekapo Lilac 8 Ply

Tekapo Lilac 8 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.
