If they're only available on Ravelry we will say that, but not link to it.  Pendle Aran, formerly Langdale Superwash Aran (a bit of a mouthful!!), is a fantastic all-round machine washable pure merino yarn which is squishy, smooth and soft...

Lowther Lace - fluff that won't get your goat

By now you will hopefully have seen our latest fluffy yarn addition to the ECY stable (or should I say.. garden) - Lowther Lace. We had seen this yarn around for a while but had been resisting as we already had a fluffy yarn, Eldwick Lace. However, with quite a few people feeling sad because they can’t use mohair, I decided it was time to offer something fluffy that isn’t mohair (note that this does also shed fibres though!). Hence the fluffy baby alpaca/silk yarn came along. I did a YouTube video about it which you can watch HERE if...
