Oakworth DK | Hand dyed Polwarth Wool from Eden Cottage Yarns

 

We are so happy to have this fabulous yarn back in stock in the shop and online, with lots of new colours to choose from. Oakworth DK is made up of 100% Polwarth wool and is hand dyed in Yorkshire by Eden Cottage Yarns. Being a double knit weight this yarn is really perfect for so many patterns but here are a few which have been knitted up in Oakworth by the designers themselves so will definitely be the perfect fit!

Thea’s Dubonnet sample has been in the shop since she visited last month and is always a big interest. has people asking about it. A versatile cardigan, the lace panel detail and the über cute pockets in a contrast colour.

An oldy but a goody if I don’t say so myself, Pillar of Society. A cute pom pom hat with a simple textured pattern. Quick to knit and easy to wear.
