Ashford Tekapo Yarn
Ashford Tekapo Yarn 100% pure New Zealand Corriedale yarn is a semi worsted yarn especially designed for softness and strength. The texture is lofty and top quality fibres have been chosen to give the yarn that special sheen associated with world class knitwear. The yarn will not pill so that your knitwear will stay looking great for a long time. However, this yarn will shrink for the craft of knit-to-felt projects.
Needle size is 4 - 4.5mm with a tension of 20 stitches and 26 rows to 10cm over stocking stitch.
Buy 500g of the same colour and save money.
This yarn is also great for use in weaving. Some shades also available in 3ply and 12 ply.
NOTE: None of these yarns are kept in stock.
