“First of Rennie’s fancy range, this is a special twist of lambswool and silk. Ideal for both knitting and weaving, The Castle Collection is available on the cone (greasy) and as 50g hand knitting balls (4 ply).”

“J C Rennie is a woollen spinner which differs from worsted spinning, which uses a method of producing straight fibres in the yarn to produce a flat cloth. In contrast, woollen spinning retains the natural crimp and air in the fibre which makes it ideal for knitwear and traditional woollen fabric, giving it a more lofty, three-dimensional character, and retaining the natural insulating properties of wool. This is a far cry from the flat cone-dyed yarn often found in the market today.”

“Understanding the description of our yarns:
Generally in the woollen trade we describe the name or brand of the yarn (i.e., SUPERSOFT), the quality (i.e., LAMBSWOOL) and the metric description (i.e., 2/11.3Nm).“

“What does the metric description 2/11.3Nm mean?
2 = The number of different yarns plied together.
11.3 = The length in metres, per ply, required to weigh one gram.

Therefore, a 2/11.3Nm yarn will require 5.65 metres to make one gram, because it has been plied twice, and therefore requires half the length to make 1 gram. (Note that our metric measurements are based on clean results, that is how many metres, per ply, required to make one gram once the yarn has been scoured).“
