Worsted Spun in Yorkshire from 100% Pure New Wool. Custom Colorway from Frangipani dyed exclusively for The Net Loft.

Yarn designed to honor the harvest, heritage, and handknits of the commercial fishing village of Cordova, Alaska, as well as all fisherfolk and fisherknitters who have come before us, in the rich history and spirit of the traditional gansey.
