Retreat Chunky Roving - 100% British Bluefaced Kerry Hill fleece (a cross-breed of BFL)

This yarn is a single plied, worsted spun, chunky, roving style yarn, reared, sheared and spun in Britain. The roving style of the yarn means that it has been very lightly spun in one direction only so that the fibres are held together very lightly. This means that the finished fabric will be as soft and airy as it can possibly be but not as strong. Take care not to untwist the yarn while knitting or crocheting as it may fall apart. We would recommend this yarn for accessories such as hats, scarves and cowls where softness is a priority. It is not an ideal yarn for garments as the fibres are so gently held together it will be susceptible to pilling and felting in places such as cuffs and underarms.

This luxurious yarn has all the great natural qualities of roving with a delicate twist and gentle halo ideal for creating beautiful knitting and crochet. Retreat Chunky Roving was developed with wellbeing in mind, and has been spun with skill and care to offer a wool that is soft, silky and a treat to wear. Use it to create luxury sweaters, cardigans, hats and scarves, or make beautiful blankets, throws and cushion covers for your home. A real pleasure to craft with, this yarn is available in gloriously uplifting, gentle and harmonious shades.

For every ball of Retreat Chunky Roving sold, West Yorkshire Spinners makes a donation to the mental-health charity Mind.
