We are delighted to be launching the sister to  our ‘Simply Socks’ range ‘Simply DK’ on the same beautiful 100% British yarn base with no nylon !

Sustainably sourced from local business owner Helen at Woolly Chic who say’s this about her yarn bases ” Our wool is produced from the fleece of sheep farmed on our family farm in Pembrokeshire, Wales. We have had our yarn spun in Yorkshire “

And then it arrived here at KNL with a bit of yarn magic splash we have given it our signature bright’s look all ready for your needles or hook – a beautiful yarn with Tencel (a wood based pulp) replacing the nylon, managing to still give it that bite for shaping that you would need for socks etc.

It also has a remarkable sheen … Read more about the yarn here ..

Spun from the fleece of British Bluefaced Leicester sheep,
which is both strong and soft and drapes beautifully once knitted, and Tencel ™ which is made from renewable wood
pulp from Eucalyptus trees grown in certified sustainable forests in Europe and South Africa. It is 100% biodegradable and the production of Tencel ™ requires less energy and water than fibres such as bamboo, cotton and viscose.
As more knitters and crocheters become increasingly conscious of the environmental and social impact of the yarn they use,
This is a non itchy British yarn that is strong enough to replace nylon for socks
and soft enough for beautiful garments worn close to the skin!
