Homespunwonders is delighted to stock Rooster Yarn. Rooster ethically source and specifically choose their yarns for softness and quality.
Rooster spin the natural fibres and dye them to produce wonderful high quality natural fibre yarns.
The yarns are unique in a number of ways: for their softness, due to the way the yarn is spun and dyed; for the twist of the yarn and stitch definition which will make your projects look fantastic; and for the colour palette, which gives a modern feel with subtle and strong tones.
To make sure you get the most out of the yarns, we also stock pattern books which have a lovely array of projects for you to choose from.
If you need help choosing colours or you do not see a colour or weight of wool you need, then please contact us and we will be happy to help.
