A truly British yarn, Moordale combines British wool and alpaca, with a range of neutrals and on-trend brights to choose from. The complimentary shades work beautifully together in colourwork, but shine equally when used on their own for lace, cables and texture. The fine micron wool and soft-to-the-touch alpaca give this yarn a robust but tender feel perfect for any season.
This soft yarn is perfect for accessories like the unisex Buckler Hat by Martin Storey. Texture throughout the hat makes it fun to make and wear. Plus, it only requires one skein for either of the two sizes.
Knit the ladies round neck sweater Tussock, a design by Martin Storey using Moordale. This simple sweater has pocket detail and contrasting rib edgings. The alpaca content in the yarn makes it slightly drapey which adds to the look of the pullover.
