New Lanark's Organic woollen yarn range is made using 100% organic wool from the Falkland Isles, which is particularly soft and therefore a favourite for hand knitting.
The range comprises of Aran Organic wool to standard UK weights which allows you to use it for all your favourite knitting patterns. We are hoping to expand the range in the near future.
At the start of 2006 our specialist wool spinning production unit was the first in Scotland to achieve the Soil Association's organic certification – Licence No: DK 17194.
The Soil Association symbol provides you, the customer, with a guarantee that the textiles are produced to the highest standards of animal welfare and environmental protection.
Our Organic wool is produced with care to global organic textile standards and spun to the highest quality on a traditional 19th century spinning mule, which is powered by renewable energy, thereby allowing us at New Lanark Wool & Textiles to keep our environmental impact to a minimum.
