Luis | Rowan | Alba 4ply
The Alba yarn collection is exclusive to Sealy MacWheely and has been blended and spun specially to my specifications with a unique blend of top quality British bred fibres.
Each colourway has been inspired by the landscape, language and folklore of the beautiful country of Scotland:
Luis [Luʃ] (Loosh) is not only the traditional Scottish Gaelic name for the letter L in the Ogham alphabet but it is also the old name for the Rowan tree. The rowan is steeped in folklore and was seen very much as a tree of protection, particularly against magic. The rowan’s wood is strong and durable and is ideal for carving, as such it was often used for turning spindles and spinning wheels.
This yarn has been worsted spun for a soft yet rustic yarn, the perfect match of luxury and performance. Enjoy the softness of British Bluefaced Leicester, the durability of the Scottish Shetland and the luxury of the UK bred Alpaca, expertly blended for an exquisite feel that's built to last. Experience the warmth and comfort of this exclusive yarn – perfect for your special projects!
Semisolid yarns make a great contrast for your favourite variegated hand dyed skeins or can be used by themselves to add a pop of colour to your next project. They feature subtle tonal variations which add a beautiful depth of shade when knitted or crocheted up.
This range can be dyed to order, please contact me for jumper quantity requests.
