Calanas

"wool work"

£30.00

Our heavier yarns are a coordinated range for weaving an authentic heavyweight tweed, offering a choice of shades, from the sultry natural tones of the Hebridean sheep in OIDHCHE, to the opalescence of ÉITEAG. These yarns have all been made with a blend of fibres from mixed breeds, which will easily come together in any combination to give you a beautifully authentic and durable cloth for many couture and interior applications.

A method of grading fleece has been developed in-house that allows us to design yarn that uses the full potential of the fleece and showcase the individual characteristics of the sheep breeds. Our yarns are spun from undyed, locally sourced wool with provenance, on heritage machinery giving them a distinct individual character.

Our own exclusive Harris Tweeds are woven with Uist Wool yarn by skilled Harris Tweed weaver Taobh Tuath Tweeds and show off the natural beauty of our yarns, which might inspire you.


A mid to light grey, this gentle shade is one of our favourites and sits neatly in the middle of the range. We send our CALANAS yarn to Ardalanish Weavers on Mull to be woven up into our blankets, an easy colour that would work harmoniously in any interior.

7.5 cut / 3.0 Nm

Our weaving yarns are supplied as single-ply yarns, oiled, on cones.

We put in a little more twist than for our knitting yarns, so they are suitable for use as both warp and weft yarns.

Weaving yarns have been steamed to set the twist.
