Welcome to the New Lanark Online Shop. We specialise in producing high quality British Organic wool, Aran wool, Double Knitting and Chunky woollen yarns, which are ideal for hand knitting. From this website you can buy hand knitting wool produced using traditional methods in one of the historic mills.
The small-scale batch production and traditional methods that we use to produce our high quality hand knitting yarns may result in stock reserves of a particular colour running low from time to time. If a colour from our one of our ranges is not available we will put a message beside the item description, and where appropriate we will suggest an alternative colour of yarn, which may suit your needs.
New Lanark was the first wool spinning production unit in Scotland to achieve the Soil Association's organic approval. We are also accredited by the British Wool Marketing Board.
We produce and sell Aran, Chunky and Double Knitting from British wool to standard UK weights making our yarn ideal for hand knitting. Aran and Chunky hand knitting yarns are excellent for knitting cosy cardigans and sweaters. Double Knitting yarn is more lightweight than Aran. All types are superb for a variety of hand knitting projects.
Our Aran, Chunky and Double Knitting yarn come in three ranges:
Donegal Silk Tweed - This range consists of 90% wool and 10% silk for a touch of added luxury.
Heather Mixtures - Our 100% wool Heather Mixtures reflect all the stunning colours of the Scottish countryside.
Natural Blend - Our 100% Natural Blend range is totally natural, and made from blending Merino and Zwarble undyed wool. Different quantities and variations of the undyed wool are mixed together to produce a wonderful range of pure, unprocessed yarn.
