In The Nude
RavensWood has added a few select repeatable colourways to the shop, What does this mean for you? You will be able to purchase your newest favourite in any quantity your heart desires! Unlike our limited edition colourways our repeatable line is available to purchase in Fingering (Sock) Weight and DK Weight.
Both our Fingering Weight (sock) and our DK Weight yarns consist of 85/15% Merino Nylon giving you the softness of extra fine merino and the extra durability produced with a bit of added nylon! , The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres.

Our Worsted Weight Yarns are available in 100% British Superwash Bluefaced Leicester Lustre Wool, The creamy BFL yarns are naturally soft but they are also good for items that are subject to wear such as socks, mittens, sweaters and hats. They drape well without heaviness due to the natural crimp of the fibre and, with long staple fibres, these yarns are less prone to pilling than many wools. The lustre of the wool emphasizes the shape of stitches so is ideal for textured stitches and cables. At 25-26 microns, the fibres are less fine than merino but the BFL fibres have large, smooth scales on their surface so they feel smoother and have a characteristic pearly sheen to them.
