Welcome to Loch Sunart Yarns &
Hand spun cashmere,
alpaca, camel down, rare breed sheep wool and silk blends
& natural shell and horn buttons
Loch Sunart Yarns &
Buttons is located on the remote Ardnamurchan peninsula on
the West Coast of Scotland and commands a beautiful
position over-looking Loch Sunart.
The business has been created to offer a range of exotic
hand spun fibre, hair and wool yarns in a selection of
natural colours. The yarns are spun either 100% pure or
with a blend of tussah or mulberry silk, giving a
beautiful sheen and texture. The aim has been to produce
an unusual range of yarns with which to create your very
own unique and individual knitwear. Of course, you do not
have to buy a large quantity of yarn – many people often
just use a few hanks for intarsia work, combining the hand
spun yarn alongside commercial knitting wools to create a
more unusual texture and design.
To complement the range of yarns Loch Sunart Yarns &
Buttons also offers a range of buttons in shell and horn –
all in natural colours and unusual shapes and sizes. The
quality of these buttons will make all the difference when
finishing off a garment.
Sheepskin Slipper Socks
I am now also making a new range of organic sheepskin
slipper socks from my Soay yarns. These are hand made from
my hand spun organic wool using a combination of crochet
and knitting and are available in three toddler sizes. The
slipper socks can also be made from my alpaca/silk yarns
but, although gorgeous and silky soft, these are not
organic. Go to my Toddler’s Sheepskin Slipper Socks page
to see more details.
