Woolfolk is an American company whose yarn offerings are truly unique. The Ovis 21 Ultimate Merino used is the finest wool fibre, notable not only for its softness but also for its ability to take and hold dye resulting in a beautiful and enduring depth of colour. The wool is farmed in the Patagonian Grasslands by farmers who pride themselves on being stewards of the land. Sustainable and ethical practices as well as a refined design aesthetic set Woolfolk apart.
Far is the worsted weight offering from Woolfolk and has enjoyed great popularity in the shop as an option for garments in particular. It has a chainette construction that allows for structure while maintaining lightness. Far produces a beautiful finished fabric that is a delight to wear. The Origami Top Hat pattern by Lori Versaci has tempted many in the shop to try Far and has won many fans of the yarn.
