The Aspen range of knitting yarn has 100% traceability from farmgate to finished yarn.
Every stage of processing has been within the South Island of New Zealand.
The beautiful fine fleece was grown by Jack & Eleanor Patterson in Oxford, North Canterbury at Starcrest Farm.
It was then sent to Timaru for scouring (washing), onto Oamaru for dyeing before returning to Christchurch to be processed into yarn. That is a journey of only 519km.
The naturally coloured Polwarth wool has been overdyed and Woollen spun to create a rustic, heathered yarn that is very soft and suitable for knitting colourwork.
