Heirloom Baby Cardigan Kit
The perfect gift or special treat for a little one. This kit contains 2 x 50g hanks of yarn, one natural ecru, and one hand dyed of our chunky 100% Cheviot chain yarn and a brand-new seamless hand-knit pattern designed by Zoe.
The pattern is beginner friendly, and quick to knit up on 8mm needles, is super light and airy but will keep your baby cosy and warm. Can be worked in 2 sizes: newborn or 0-3 months. The perfect blank embroidery base for customising with baby’s name or saying.
All packed up in a wrapped kit, for you to either knit and gift, or gift as it is!
100% British Cheviot wrapped around a pure wool core to create a super chunky yarn without the weight or bulk. It's light and airy qualities come from the combed Cheviot tops being whipped around an ultra-thin pure wool core (at present this isn't British wool as we couldn't spin it fine enough...but we're working on it!)
The British Cheviot is fully traceable. The Cheviot gives a soft and crisp feel, whilst still being a strong and versatile yarn. This is a great natural yarn base which takes dyes well.
- Weight: Approx. Super chunky weight (chain ply)
- Length: Approx. 51m/56yds per 50g
- Tested on 8mm needles
FLEECE & NATURAL FIBRES
Our North Country Cheviot fleeces come from Maria and John's own Lake District flock and the Heatherlea Cheviots from George and Sabrina Ross who are crofters in the Highlands.
- Fleece scoured in the UK
- Processed into yarn in Italy
For this yarn we worked with a highly regarded Italian spinner to push the boundaries of Cheviot wool use, re-introducing the wonders of quality British wool to a European audience, and benefitting from their immense knowledge of fine yarn spinning. The mill shares our regenerative business values.
- Hand wash only - we recommend a wool wash
- Air dry flat to keep shape

We believe by offering our knowledge generously we can help to build bespoke yarn and fleece projects that fulfil the needs of different brands and support their individual journey, that helps us to continue to build an ethical system that connects a community of like-minded people.
Experimenting with blends
We have been working on creating a library of yarns that pushes the boundaries of how we can utilise British wool for different end yarn types.
Experimenting with natural plant fibres and exciting breed blends, more information coming soon.
