Moordale is made using fine micron wool of the Bluefaced Leicester which is known for being both soft and strong. This is then blended with British Alpaca to add a lustrous, silky touch, resulting in a natural, robust, tender yarn which drapes well and feels comfortable on the skin.
The roots of this British yarn lie in West Yorkshire, the home of Rowan. It is produced by Laxtons Specialist Yarns, who are based in Bradford. Established in 1907, this British manufacturer is currently run by the 4th generation of the Laxton family. With a rich heritage and a strong ethos for sustainability, Laxtons were the perfect fit when we were looking to create this truly British yarn. Laxtons pride themselves on leading the way with sustainable practices and reducing the impact on the environment.
Moordale is currently available in a palette of eighteen shades including a range of neutrals, plus beautiful brights.
