Pebble Island, in the Falkland Islands archipelago, is home to a farming family and several thousand unique Merino sheep who graze freely on the luscious natural vegetation and breathe in the rich sea air. This special location is where some of the world’s finest pure merino wool is grown, and then carefully shorn by hand before shipping to the UK where it is spun and dyed in a family-owned Yorkshire mill. This is a yarn that has taken time and careful planning—Rowan has been able to procure the entire clip from several shearings to launch a very special limited-quantity yarn, and is committed to continuing to purchase from the island each year. This yarn is fully traceable, responsibly farmed, and 100% pure. The beautiful palette was developed by Erika Knight and is inspired by the natural stones and the indigenous flora and fauna found on Pebble Island. This exceptional yarn is natural, renewable, biodegradable, breathable, hypoallergenic, resilient and elastic, making it comfortable both to knit with and to wear.
