Reclaimed Lambswool Darning Yarn - 'Oranges & Lemons' Set

Reclaimed Lambswool Darning Yarn - 'Oranges & Lemons' Set


A gorgeous set of 7 fresh, citrus inspired shades perfect for repairs, darning and visible mending. 

The set includes the following colours:

Corn (Col: 089), 50's Yellow (032), Bumblebee (Col: 096), Citrus (Col: 039), Papaya (Col: 009), Carrot (Col: 005) and Sticky Toffee Apple (Col: 052).


Our beautiful quality yarn is spun and dyed right here in the U.K using 100 % merino wool -it's actually leftover surplus yarn from the textile production process.


It contains no added synthetic fibres unlike most darning wool or mending yarns, which are often a mix of wool and polyester/nylon which makes it hard-wearing, but sadly it releases micro-plastics in the wash and doesn't biodegrade. We prefer to source pure yarn which helps to reduce our impact on the planet!


A fine, 2-ply yarn which can be doubled up if you require a thicker yarn for your mending project.


Suitable for:

  • darning by hand or with a Speedweve loom.
  • embroidery on knitwear.
  • mending light-medium weight knitwear e.g jumper, cardigan, wool socks, gloves, scarf, hat or even a blanket!


The yarn is presented on a Ministry of Mending card for easy storage and winding. Our cards are printed locally in Cornwall using 100% recycled card (FSC certified & chlorine-free).


Each card contains approximately 10 m (33 ft) of yarn.


*Every effort has been taken to ensure these photos are an accurate representation of the colours, but since every computer monitor and mobile device is different, we cannot guarantee the colour will be an exact match to what you see online.
