Ashford Tekapo Wool Yarn - Natural White

ASH-TYCONE

Availability:
1-3 Days

Ashford is proud of its very own Tekapo Yarn. It is 100% pure New Zealand, with the wool grown on sheep farms around New Zealand and yarn spun in a small boutique mill in Hawkes Bay. This semi worsted yarn is a blend of corriedale and perendale especially designed for softness and strength. It is lofty and bulky and ideal for knitting, weaving and knit/felt garments, accessories and projects. 

The yarn is named after the beautiful Lake Tekapo, just 90 minutes south-west of Ashburton. The lake, ringed by snow capped Southern Alps and glaciers is famous for its bright turquoise color caused by its suspended glacial dust. In 1857 one of the first sheep stations in the New Zealand was established on its shore.
