Pure Wool: A Guide to Using Single-Breed Yarn

Author: Susan Blacker

Single-breed wool yarn offers amazing, unique qualities that differ from breed to breed. Pure Wool explains how to select and wisely use single-breed wool yarn to take best advantage of these qualities in knitting, crocheting, rug making, and other needlecrafts.

Detailed descriptions of 16 types of pure wool focus on the specific characteristics that make each type great for some projects and not so good for others.

In addition, 21 knitting patterns are given, along with information on the best kinds of wools to use for them. All the technical know-how you need to get creative with single-breed yarns, as well as an introduction to the sheep, and the people, behind the wool.

Sue Blacker owns and manages a specialist wool mill in Cornwall, England, where she processes fleece sourced from a wide range of breeds, including Jacob, Gotland, Manx, Ryeland, Southdown, and Wensleydale. Committed to using natural fibers, Sue actively promotes the use of single-breed wools through her company, Blacker Yarns.
