The Uniqueness of Corriedale Wool

Corriedale sheep are renowned for producing fleece that is remarkably fine, yet robust enough to withstand the test of time. The resulting yarn carries these unique qualities, making it a treasured material for both beginners and seasoned knitters. The wool's natural elasticity and warmth make it an excellent choice for a variety of projects, ensuring that your handmade items will be cherished for years to come.

The Benefits of Corriedale Knitting Yarn

Corriedale knitting yarn is ideal to be used for medium weight outer garments and general knitting. A benefit of using Corriedale wool is that they have a little more bulk and loftiness due to its medium diameter fibre. They will not slip around while knitting or become loose as you wear the completed garment.

Corriedale knitting yarn is also more “grippy” compared to delicate yarns such as baby merino yarn. The extra grip makes them ideal for gloves, rugs, outwears like jerseys and sweaters, and hats!

What is the Difference Between Corriedale Wool and Merino Wool?

Corriedale yarn is The Wool Company’s hand knitting yarn spun from carefully selected fleeces from Timahanga Station in the central North Island. Corriedale produces a soft yet hard wearing yarn, bringing you the best of both.

Coming from a different breed of sheep compared to the sheep that supply merino knitting wool means there is a slight difference in the fibres. Corriedale knitting yarns may be less fine than merino, however, they are still naturally warm, super soft and durable!
