Naturally dyed loveliness from Woolly Mammoth Fibre Co.

We have a brand new yarn! Woolly Mammoth Fibre Co. was debuted at Loop during Edinburgh Yarn Festival, and we now have it in our London store as well as online. We have two different yarns from Woolly Mammoth, and we’re so happy to welcome them to the selection of wonderful naturally dyed yarns we already have in stock at Loop. We are also running a giveaway this week, with a beautiful bundle of Woolly Mammoth Natural Sock minis up for grabs! Keep on reading to find out more.

Woolly Mammoth was founded in 2017 by Emma Robinson. All of the beautiful yarn is hand dyed by Emma in Northern Ireland, on the North Coast.

Emma is passionate about unusual or interesting sheep breeds, and this is reflected in the yarns she chooses to dye and to work with. All of the Woolly Mammoth yarns we have at Loop are non-superwash and breed specific. Both of the yarns we carry are a Blue Faced Leicester/Cheviot blend, which is soft and springy.

All Woolly Mammoth yarns are naturally dyed. Emma uses plants that have been foraged from her local area or home grown in her garden, or scraps that have been salvaged from kitchen waste.

The soft colour palette is inspired and informed by the Irish landscape on Emma’s doorstep.

Loop is carrying two yarns from Woolly Mammoth Fibre Co. We have the Natural Sock minis, which are sweet bundles of five 20g mini skeins, each a different colour, wrapped with a small piece of Irish linen. We also have the Natural Sock, which comes in 100g skeins, with 400m per skein, so there’s plenty to play with in just one skein.

The fibre for these yarns is 50% BFL and 50% Cheviot, and has been sourced and spun in the UK. It has a high twist, which means it is comfortable to wear against your skin, but it’s also very durable.

Woolly Mammoth Natural Sock is of course perfect for knitting socks, but it would also be wonderful knitted into a lightweight sweater or cardigan, or a beautiful shawl.

There is a wonderful write-up all about Woolly Mammoth yarns, and Emma’s practice, in the newest issue of Laine Magazine, which we have just restocked! Jonna of Laine came to visit us at Loop this week, and we were so thrilled to see her!

We’ve put together a few pattern suggestions for our newest yarn; we think these would be wonderful knitted up in the Woolly Mammoth!

First up, our Loop Toe-Up Socks are perfect for the Natural Sock base. This is a free pattern for toe-up socks with an afterthought heel, and is a go-to in the shop when we want to knit a sample in a new sock yarn. How cute would a stripy pair be, knitted with the Natural Sock minis?

The Under The Milky Way shawl would be gorgeous knitted up in the subtle shades of the Natural Sock – there are so many colour combinations to choose from!

And how about a breezy top for the Spring? We’d love to see an Ara Tunic knitted in one of the beautiful semi solid colours from Woolly Mammoth. This lightweight top from Quince & Co would be a great choice with the springy Natural Sock base.

    Knitting socks and shawls and other things to steal your heart away

    Emma’s yarns are so beautiful. I love that they are natural and non-superwash. I managed to snag a few skeins at Alterknit (a woolly shop near Bristol), when they hosted Emma’s trunk show. The skeins are some of the most special in my stash, and I’m hoping to knit them into a lovely sweater design, I’ve had my eyes on, later this year. Thank you for this great giveaway! I’m keeping everything crossed.
