The LBA collection of worsted-weight Corriedale yarns are gorgeous and bloom beautifully when blocked; perfect for creating worsted-weight garments and accessories. All yarns listed on this page can be used interchangeably. They are the same thickness and are designed to be knit together or as substitutes for each other. All are 230m (250 yards) per 100g skein.
Corrie Worsted is a beautiful mix of white Falkland Corriedale and grey Gotland wool. This light-grey fiber mixed with the bright white merino gives Corrie Worsted a beautiful depth of color.
Wensley Worsted is made entirely of white fibers: 50% Falkland Corriedale, 25% Falkland Merino and 25% Wensleydale. The white base means that LBA can dye all their super bright colors on it and it is easier to see slight nuances in color on a single skein.
Wensleydale and Gotland are long, shiny fibers and will create a fabric that is well-wearing with incredible sheen.
Corrie Confetti shares all of the above characteristics and includes recycled fibers. (We always love a project that saves and celebrates scraps!) Each batch of Confetti is a limited edition yarn in terms of color. So grab it while you can, as there may not be more! RGO, which means Really great Orange, is a color inspired by the Iconic Orange Lady, Gaye Glasspie, the famous GG. Ochre is based upon the ever-popular, best-selling LBA color Yellow Brick Road. And the confetti in Nancy's Speckled Sweater actually uses scraps of yarn from iconic designer Nancy's Marchant's stash!
