    How much fibre will I need?

    This will depend on not only how finely you spin, but also the size and tension of the final knitted garment. 100g of fibre will make 100g of yarn the length of which will depend on how chunky you spin the yarn. The weights below are a helpful guide but cannot be guaranteed. If you are unsure, buy a little bit more than you think you need (that's what stashes are for!)

    Natural, renewable & biodegradable

    Wool is 100% natural. Every year sheep produce a new fleece making wool a renewable fibre source. At the end of its useful life wool can be returned to the soil where it will quickly decompose. For more information visit the Campaign for Wool.
