St. Ives – Corriedale Sport
The Corriedale Sport fleece is sourced from the Falkland Islands, supporting small farmers who depend on wool production as their main income. The yarn is versatile with a slight halo giving it a beautiful natural feel but still comes with the smoothness of a worsted spun yarn. A sport yarn is designed to be used across sweater and accessories patterns alike and can also be substituted in place of a DK weight.
Inspired by the work of Barbara Hepworth, who’s studio and garden are in St. Ives and are much as they were when she lived and worked there.
