"Yarns that stand the test of time"
Linda, the dyer/owner of Kettle Yarn Co says: My fibres are sourced from ethical mills, all materials and products carefully chosen to reduce negative impacts on the environment. For discerning makers looking for the most precious materials, all yarns are extensively wear tested and only the highest quality, scrumptiously soft but rugged blends make the grade for my yarns.
The Woolly Thistle is honored to stock Beyul, a luxury yarn, hand dyed by Kettle Yarn Co in Hastings, England.
Hastings is a town on England’s southeast coast. It's known for the 1066 Battle of Hastings, fought on a nearby field where Battle Abbey now stands. The Norman ruins of Hastings Castle, once home to William the Conqueror, overlook the English Channel.

BEYUL combines the best of 3 fibers – the gentle halo of high quality Yak down, a subtle shimmer from silk, and the bouncy goodness of the softest superwash Merino. This blend is truly a dyer’s dream, taking dye with an intoxicating richness that takes your breath away.
Yak is durable, breathable, lightweight and its incredible thermal properties keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter.
Care: hand wash, lay flat to dry.

Please remember that every effort is taken to represent the true colors of the yarn and that monitor settings will vary.
