Cherokee Purple Tomato
Cotswold yarn is a luster long-wool yarn which gives it a beautiful silky sheen. The texture is similar to BFL wool which is soft and strong but does not have the fluffiness of merino. As a double ply that varies between fingering and sport weight it is a great yarn to knit doubled with mill spun or to create blocks of both color and texture in shawls, wraps, and hats.
Our Cherokee Purple Tomato skein is part of our Heritage Collection which is spun from 100% Heritage Cotswold Wool. Cotswold sheep are a threatened sheep breed. When you purchase from our Heritage collection you support farmers who choose to raise rare and diminishing breeds so that we can continue to have a diverse selection of yarns to meet the needs of every project.
