The 5-ply construction and worsted spinning of this yarn creates a crisp, lean fabric with unparalleled stitch definition. It is the ideal yarn for highly textured or cabled designs such as the traditional ‘Gansey’ or ‘Jersey’ jumpers.

We have a range of Guernsey yarns in both natural and dyed colours of Romney, Zwartbles, Manx, Hebridean, and Jacob. These shades have been chosen to reflect the Channel Islands’ striking coastline.

All of the wool used in our Guernsey yarns has been sourced locally in Devon and Cornwall.
